Alright, so, I forget: How do I get write access to my drives?
I'm using Ubuntu 7.04
I have one older drive that linux is on, and I think it's set as master? My bootloader is on that one. I have a second drive that Windows is on and I dual boot using operating systems on two drives. thirdly I have an external harddrive
Linux drive: Whole drive is dedicated to linux. ext3. /dev/sdb1
Windows drive. Whole drive is Windows. NTFS. /dev/sda1. Mounted at /media/Main
External. NTFS. /dev/sdc1. Mounted at /media/External
I still don't know much about Linux. I'm only really on it because my windows is currently broken and, well, long boring story. All that's important is: I want to have write access to all my drives, I want to move my files on my linux drive off to the external, and I want to wipe out this linux install and re-install (not merely upgrade)
I've googled extensively and poked around on the Ubuntu site and a third-party Wiki but I just can't get the suggestions to work.
What file(s) do I need to edit, and what exactly do I need to put in them?
Volume information, which is probably helpful? -
"Mount options" for:
External: ro nosuid nodev uid=0 gid=0 umask=0222 nls=utf8 errors=countine mft_zone_multiplier=1
Main: (windows drive): same thing
