| LABEL=/                 /                       ext3 defaults
| 1 1 none                    /dev/pts                devpts
| gid=5,mode=620  0 0 none                    /dev/shm
| tmpfs defaults        0 0 LABEL=/home             /home
| ext3 defaults        1 2 none                    /proc
| proc defaults        0 0 none                    /sys
| sysfs defaults        0 0 /dev/hda7               swap
| swap defaults        0 0 /dev/cdrom              /mnt/cdrom
| udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0 /dev/hda/hda1
| /mnt/win1               ntfs defaults        0 0 /dev/hdb/hdb1
| /mnt/win2               ntfs defaults        0 0 /dev/sda/sda1
| /mnt/sata               ntfs defaults        0 0
|
| Okay, now when I try to mount these:
|
| [[email protected] root]# mount -a -t ntfs mount: special device
| /dev/hda/hda1 does not exist (a path prefix is not a directory)
|
| mount: special device /dev/hdb/hdb1 does not exist (a path prefix
| is not a directory)
|
| mount: special device /dev/sda/sda1 does not exist (a path prefix
| is not a directory)

Hi, pascal.

I think you're mounting the drives incorrectly.  Here's how I would
mount them:

mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/win1
mount -t ntfs /dev/hdb1 /mnt/win2

I think that should work for you.

(Note:  You need to either be root or do a a sudo to run these commands.)
