Re: Mount Other filesystems



But Mandrake and others do it, so it must be relative harmless because I
do not see complaints about it. Its a easy enough to do it in fstab, but
I think it should be available on install. I thought anyoe could do
VFAT. I mean, mkfs can make FAT partitions. I do not use NTFS because I
want my other partitions to be available under Linux.

On a side note, is there any such thing as ext3 drivers for windows so I
could maybe access these partitions under Windows.
