    mounting a NTFS folder on my /home/myuser folder

    Dear List,

    I am trying to mount "My Documents" folder from my M$ windows NTFS partition into my home folder in linux.
    I already mounted the partition and I can see and open the files in "My Documents" folder but I am tired of navigating the hole "/mnt/C/Documents and Settings/Jonathan/My Documents" on nautilus every time I need to find something. I tryed to mount it on "/home/jaguero" but I guess the mount command is having truoble with the blank spaces in the dir path.
    I used
    mount /mnt/C/Documents and Settings/Jonathan/My Documents /home/jaguero

    Thanks in advance

    You can mount it that way and also there is existing data in /home/jaquero since I assume this is your home directory. If mounted to that mout existing data would disappear. You need to mount to a empty directory.

    If it is mounted all the time then how about a softlink to it. Use a command like this.
    ln -s /mnt/C/"Documents and Settings"/Jonathan/"My Documents" /home/jaguero/Documents
