Dear all,
I have Linux (suse) and Windows (XP) on my system, but my windows files don't appear in the windows directory of linux. I can't see them. What can I do?

Have you mounted them ? – Sathya Jan 16 '10 at 10:35

Are the Windows Partitions mounted ? Head over to YaST -> Software -> Partitioner. They should look something like this:

Partitioner 1

Partitioner 2

To make it writable, Click on fstab options and ad an entry umask=000 as shown in the pic

fstab options

Dear Sathya, Thanks alot for your attention. I checked it and also I change it's "Fstab Options" to "Mount Read Only" (I saw none of them have been marked) and then my files appeared. Now I can read them, But I can't write in the windows directory on linux. Are there any option among them that give me full permission for write and read. Regards – aryan Jan 16 '10 at 11:11
@aryan Uncheck the mount readonly - Just browse to the directory it should get mounted. Your fstab options page should look similar to the pic. Don't forget to add the umask=000 entry – Sathya Jan 16 '10 at 12:45
@Sathya It doesn't work. I faced an error. error code was: -3003 – aryan Jan 16 '10 at 13:07
@aryan - post a screenshot with the full error message – Sathya Jan 16 '10 at 13:25
