Where do people get it from that Ubuntu is a user-friendly desktop distro? It's aimed at people with a modicum of experience. (yeah sure it's friendly for them I hear you say)

I for one, a noob when it comes to Linux but not inexperienced at computers, couldn't figure out how to get any of my fat-partitions mounted, not even from a CLI.

And when I tried to get wireless support, I followed the instructions that came with the source. Unsuccesfully, because a gcc wasn't installed by default in Ubuntu, so make install didn't work..wtf?

You could have set the mount point during instalation and we would't be talking about this now...

If you want to set up that partition now here's a tip

* select applications > run application
* run gksudo nautilus
* Find create a folder /win-c or whatever path u want
* Find the file /etc/fstab and add the line like this
/dev/hdaX /win-c auto exec,umask=000 0 0

BTW: Windows does't even reads any FileSystem other than Fat, Fat32 and NTFS out of the box...
