    Question mount NTFS disk problem

    I have xubuntu on my PC ( because very old and slow computer).
    The problem here is that my new Xubuntu (9.04) can't detect the NTFS disk.

    david@DD:~$ sudo fdisk -l

    Disk /dev/sda: 40.0 GB, 40007761920 bytes
    240 heads, 63 sectors/track, 5168 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 15120 * 512 = 7741440 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x95aa95aa

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sda1 1 3048 23042848+ 5 Extended
    /dev/sda2 * 3049 5167 16019608+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
    /dev/sda5 1 161 1217097 82 Linux swap / Solaris
    /dev/sda6 162 1711 11717968+ 83 Linux
    /dev/sda7 1712 3048 10107688+ 83 Linux
    david@DD:~$

    I have some data on /dev/sda2 NTFS.
    I try this, but its not work for me.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g
    sudo mkdir /windows
    sudo gedit /etc/fstab
    Add an entry
    Code:
    /dev/sda2  /windows  ntfs-3g    defaults,noatime,rw 0  0
    See if this works

    P.S. Just one difference

    With xubuntu we have to use

    sudo mousepad /etc/fstab
