In my Slackware 13.1 distro I create a partition using fdisk and setting the type to NTFS/HPFS and then I format it using mkfs.ntfs without any additional parameters. However, when I can't open that partition in Windows XP since it is simply missing. Just not identified. What could be the cause and maybe someone had similar experience? Thx!

Does the drive show up under Disk Management? –  Justin Pearce May 4 '11 at 21:09
