I'm currently dual booting Linux Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows Vista. I'm having a bit of a problem with transferring some of the files from Vista into Ubuntu. I heard about copying and pasting the files from one to another, but I can't find the folder (partition) that contains Vista in Ubuntu.
Any help and suggestions please.
Also, I'm new to Linux.

Open up a terminal and type:
sudo fdisk -l

Hit enter.

Then copy and paste the output here.

Type and hit enter after each of these:
sudo su
mkdir /media/windows
gedit /etc/fstab
and add this line to the end of the text file that comes up:
/dev/sda2 /media/windows ntfs defaults,locale=en_US.utf8 0 0
Then restart and see if you can access the files in the /media/windows folder.

Sorry for taking a while to reply back.
After I type in that command, it says:

line 10 in /etc/fstab is bad

To edit fstab run:
sudo gedit /etc/fstab

replace:
/host/ubuntu/disks/swap.disk none swap loop,sw 0 0/dev/sda2 /media/windows ntfs defaults,locale=en_US.utf8 0 0

with:
/host/ubuntu/disks/swap.disk none swap loop,sw 0 0
/dev/sda2 /media/windows ntfs defaults,locale=en_US.utf8 0 0

Then run:
sudo mount -a

And see if there is any thing in /media/windows.
