I recently installed Knoppix to my HD and all went well (eventually). But now as I take files which I backed up from my computer and try to copy them to hda4 it tells me that access is denied to mnt/hda4. I can't seem to put anything onto this partition, what could my problem be?

as before I am new to Linux, so if I haven't given enough information please ask me specifically for what you need to know.

Thanks,
Seeger

I a newbie myself. But probably the device was mounted as read-only.

Check out man-pages for mount and see fstab.

Goof luck

what filesystem is it? if you had XP on that computer it is likely ntfs.
Ntfs is a filesystem that is generally read only for linux.
there is a few projects like captive that work arountd those limitations,
but "I" consider them to be far from perfect.

It is not NTFS, it's ext3 I believe. It think the problem is that its ownership in the permissions tab is "user: root" and "group: root". How can I make that available to all users and not just the root user?

Thanks,
