Hi just wondering the commands to mount an xp drive after booting from the usb flash drive?

do you want it to mount every time you boot from usb or just this once?
if you want it to mount to say a folder called "windowsFiles" in your root directory every boot:
su -c "mkdir /windowsFiles"
su -c "gedit /etc/fstab"
and add a new line:
/dev/sda1 /windowsFiles ntfs defaults 0 0
(assuming the drive you want to mount is /dev/sda)
once you've done this, you can either reboot or simply type
su -c "mount -a"
should be sweet :)

the 1st command worked fine but when i did the 2nd one i got this
(gedit:6006): EggSMClient-WARNING **: Failed to connect to the session manager: None of the authentication protocols specified are supported
GConf Error: Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See http://www.gnome.org/projects/gconf/ for information. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.)
and another windows opened fstab (/etc)
