Some questions

1. How do I can enter the resolv.conf? With su - ? what is the command to read/edit?


You must edit resolv.conf to find the linux with a windows XP? And how do I add the linux to a members group like in windows.


2. I cant find my second harddrive in linux. I have maked the a partition with Linux format. But I dont find it eny way. I think i have to add something in a file. A command line or something. But dont know what it is :)


Thanks for the help peoples :)


to edit files that require root privaledge simply type


su -


the - after su is important.


once done, you are logged in as root, and can edit files using a variety of methods, the editor i'd suggest you learn is called 'vi' and while it appears hard to use at first you'll get the hang of it after a while


vi /path/to/some/file


to see your hard discs as root type


fdisk -l


thats -l as in larry






But how to find the harddrive in my computer. I find it with fdisk -l.

But cant save files to it or find it in my computer.


paste the output of fdisk -l here


also, what distro are you runnin (what distrobution of linux and what version)


and is the drive just a blank drive or is it NTFS/FAT ?






sometimes Fedora automatically mounts windows devices and adds them to the /etc/fstab

so do cat /etc/fstab and see if you can see your windows mount point
