    It should automatically find the volume. When you see the volume that you want to mount, all you should have to do is open it with a double click. Let me know if you don't see the volume you want to mount and we can go from there.

At a terminal, type:
fdisk -l
as root to see what drives and partitions are on your system. Let's say your partition is /dev/sda1. Next you need a mount point. I like to make and use /sd so type:
mkdir /sd
and to mount it, type:
mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /sd
and to view what's on the drive, type:
ls /sd

Can't remember the password of my old computer can't acces to nowhere since i can't open my session it's windows 7


What a joke! Remember!
If you just want your data, perhaps you can mount the partition using a LiveCD that mounts vfat/fat32/ntfs partitions, like WattOS?

How to install linux fedora 7, already i am using windows 7, now i want to use dual os's , please tell me how to install linux.


WARNING: I will not be responsible for any data loss that occurs. It is recommended to backup your hard disk to external media before commencing any of these operations. 1. Download and burn the Fedora LiveCD. It is recommended that you use the latest version, Fedora 14, instead of 7, but you can use Version 7 anyways. 2. Boot up with the Fedora LiveCD. Select Install. 3. Follow the instructions displayed onscreen. When you reach the partitioning screen, you will need to resize your Windows partition. Resize it to a reasonable size (1024MB =1GB). Leave at least 5GB for Fedora to install. 4. After resizing, select the "Use Free Disk Space" option, and continue installing. 5. Your system will be installed with Fedora and the GRUB bootloader. The GRUB bootloader will allow you to boot into both Windows and Fedora.
I hope this post helps you. I appreciate your vote very much!

Which partition is the best in NTFS & FAT32?


For most users running Windows XP, NTFS is the obvious choice. It's more powerful and offers security advantages not found in the other file systems like FAT16, FAT32.

Fedora 10


Depends on what you are using it for.

I think personally, thats better if you wait.

Since there not even all repositories able to serve the Fedora 9.

Ubuntu Installation


If your able to see the Windows Setup page, and get as far as your partitions, I would suggest deleting the partitions on the hard drive (make sure you know what your doing before trying this), as Ubuntu is mounted normally on a filesystem which Windows can not read (EXT2/3 for Linux - Fat32 / NTFS for Windows).

Once you have deleted all partitions, you can then create a partition (I'd recommend just clicking Install) and then chose the second option to format (not quick) for NTFS.

This then does a "secure" format of your hard drive, setting you up for a nice stable installation.

Apart from that, why don't you try jumping onto Ubuntuforums.org for Ubuntu Help, since Ubuntu is a much better Operating System (OS) than Windows, and there is a great community for helping people.
