I had cloned the 120GB drive 1:1 to the new drive. Then I made a new ext3 partition filling the remaining free space.I am also not sure what you are trying to do. Does the disk still have it's Windows partition and do you intend to use the windows file format?
Thanks a lot. I had successfully mounted Windows partitions in the past, but I didn't really know what I did when I did that...Post your fstab file and I'll take a look at it. I think I know what is wrong.
I seemed like X was not running. I tried to run kedit from the console, but it didn't work.As Voxell said, editing fstab can be done using something like vi or vim but if you are not used to those tools then they are not easy to use for the first time. What you can also do is to run any graphical editor as root when you enter X.
Yeah, thanks. I just didn't even get to KDE, but was redirected to a console earlier (don't know at which stage).So what you can do (for example if you use KDE) is to open up Konsole, do "su -" and then enter the root password. From there, just write "kate" and you'll get your gui editor. But you have to do this as root because all files under /etc can only be edited by root.
Really? So it should have been already installed in my Fedora Core 3 setup... I tried to run "qtparted" from the console but the system didn't seem to know it. So I installed it via Yum.Btw, qtparted is actually a KDE tool.
Will do that when I have time.And last but not least, pass us the output from the command "mount" as well.
Thanks a lot for your help, purrkurr (cheers to Voxell, too)
