I got Mandrake 9.1 on my desktop and I want to know if I can see folders and files in the windows partition, because Im tired of burning cds on windows and use them when linux is up.

Mandrake should have mounted your windows partition at /mnt/windows_c
The mounting of these partitions is automated at boot, by /etc/fstab.
If for any obscure reason it is not mounting at boot you will need to mount manually. as root.
Code:
mount -t vfat /dev/hdaX /mnt/wherever

X = the partition number.

Dude thanks a lot for your time, I solve the problem, by going into de /mnt/ folder


Why so many CD drives, I only got three, a DVD rom, cd writter (both came with the Vaio) and a DVD writer (HP externat unit model dvd300e DVD+R/+RW)

you can remove the dirs by deleting the unnecessary ones. As root! smile
