If you have setup a Microsoft Windows and Linux dual boot system you may want to mount the windows partition automatically when you boot into GNU/Linux. As usual I don't suggest using any special scripts or packages for this. We will use the standard *nix files system table (fstab for short) file which stores all the entries about all known filesystems on the system and place an entry for our partition. Lets get started,Just place the following line into your /etc/fstab (filesystem table) file and you are done.
/dev/hdaX /mnt/C vfat defaults,auto 0 0
- /dev/hdaX if you are using a IDE harddrive, X is the number of the partition (use fdisk -l to list your partition info)
- /mnt/C the mount point, where the windows partition is attached
- vfat - vfat for 98x or ntfs for NTFS partition
- auto - Mount the partition at boot time
