Re: Copying files to a windows XP partition (mtools?)
If you dont have/cant make a vfat partition there is another option.
There is a windows driver for ext2 (1) (assuming that's what you use)
which enables you to copy from linux to windows when in windows.
Unfortunatly, you should have a vfat partition to exchange data between
Linux and Windows using mtools. As ntfs filesystem and "write permission
under linux" are not very friendly, you may want to have a look at

With a lot of help from people on this list, I have a dual-boot

After mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 ./mntpoint
I can use ls to see files in the windows partition and copy files
to debian. However, I cannot send files in the other direction.
I hope there is a simple fix.
On an older dual-boot system, I used mtools. Is this still
recommended? I tried created a mtools.conf file that just said
but I just get a message "drive c: not supported"
