You don't need any extra packages for mounting FAT32 and NTFS in Linux.
The drivers for these files should be either compiled into the kernel or
compiled as modules. In Fedora, you have the support for FAT32 and NTFS
in the kernel. So, it should be possible for you to mount these
I assume /dev/hda1 is FAT32 and /dev/hda2 is NTFS. The command string to
mount these two are
# mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/fat -t vfat
# mount /dev/hda2 /mnt/ntfs -t ntfs -o ro
Assuming you have /mnt/fat and /mnt/ntfs. If you are using kernel < 2.6,
write support is dangerous in NTFS. So, mount it read only. If you are
running kernel 2.6, then there is a safe write support for NTFS in it.
