[gnome] Accessing NTFS partitions from Nautilus

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have a Dell Dimension / Celeron D PC, with Windows XP, and 3 80GB hard disks. This is my first foray into Linux ever. In Dec. '11 I downloaded Ubuntu 11.10 to a USB, and installed from it. I partitioned sda with 2 NTFS partitions for XP, sdb with 3 partitions for Ubuntu, and left sdc with 1 ntfs partition for music .mp3 files. I'm using the default gnome GUI, mostly. I now have a dual-boot XP or Ubuntu machine! :o When I first started using gnome, I'd click on the Home Folder in the launcher, and Nautilus would show 5 items: my Home folder, The File System, ie all folders start (Hardware)
