I'm running UBuntu 11.10 as a guest in VMWare Player on a WIndows 7 laptop and would like to mount an NTFS directory in UBuntu but not sure how to go about it. All the directions I've found are written from the perspective that Linux is running in a dual-boot environment whereas from inside the guest environment I don't have any NTFS in fdisk.
Disk /dev/sda: 21.5 GB, 21474836480 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 2610 cylinders, total 41943040 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0x0008a459 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 2048 40894463 20446208 83 Linux /dev/sda2 40896510 41940991 522241 5 Extended /dev/sda5 40896512 41940991 522240 82 Linux swap / Solaris
I was expecting to see an NTFS device though as I'd enabled shared folders in my virtual machine settings. Can someone point me to to some info on the matter?
