View Full Version : Sharing files with Windows XP

4th November 2004, 11:17 PM
Hi guys:

Well my problem is simple, I am newbee, so please dont be rough, and I dont know a way to share files between my WindowsXP and linux FC2 which are mounted on the same PC but on different disks. The main issue is that WinXP has a ntfs partition, so when I tried the "mount /dev... " procedure, it obviously said it wouldnt recognize ntfs partitions. Is there any way around this issue (without risking any OS) ??? . Thanks,

This won't put your data at risk, as ntfs is still read only. Writing to ntfs is complicated.
