  1. Ok first things first, I REALLY wanted to learn linux that's why I installed it but now I am having doubts. My yum doesn't work properly my sound doesn't work, and I can't network my cpu correctly with my roommates so I'm giving up. All I want to do now is just get my mp3's back onto my windows XP sp2 hard drive, but apparently it's impossible to do. I tried going through windows and accessing the hard drive but then my linux hard drive wasn't being read. I installed magic partition program on my XP drive and then the linux drive finally showed up but I couldnt access any folders inside. So now I'm trying the reverse going through my FC5 drive to access my XP drive and transfer the files over. However, I'm stuck I don't know where to go or what commands to use to access my XP drive, I don't even think it's being detected by the OS (in BIOS however it IS being read). I don't know if I have to mount it or not or anything like that, so I didn't try Dan's newbie tutorial guide on mounting NTFS drives. I don't want to do something that permanently screws me over, so I'm asking here first. I typed fdisk -l in my su directory and it showed up as this: Disk /dev/hda: 120.0 GB, 120034123776 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 14593 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/hda1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux /dev/hda2 14 14593 117113850 8e Linux LVM Disk /dev/hdb: -955586550 MB, 72058857482354688 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, -1 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Disk /dev/hdb doesn't contain a valid partition table I have no idea what that means can someone please help so this noob can go back to XP and leave this linux world. I REALLY need step by step process because I am utterly lost. Thanks in advance, sorry for being the super noob of all noobs........
