that is a good idea, to make my data partition fat32 instead of ntfs. I only don't know how to do it safely: The folder "My Documents" in Windows points to this partition. Maybe when I start Pardus, copy the content of my data-partition somewhere else, reformat it to fat32 and place the content back Windows doesn't cause troubles because of the changed disk - but I'm not sure...
And yes, I need Windows and always will need it in the future. I develop sofware, currently for Windows but I want to go cross-platform. So at least I need Windows to compile and test my programs for Windows. I hope
however that Pardus can become my main Operating System.
I tried also "chroot /media/sda5" but the same error. I have now re-installed Pardus and everything is working fine.
The idea to use www.fs-driver.org
to access my ext3 partition is also a very nice idea. I didn't knew such a program existed. When Pardus has become my main OS, this may be the best solution!
I don't think it is the new kernel causing it, because last weeks pardus 2007 automatically upgraded to a newer kernel (I could see that from an added line in Grub), and still everything worked fine.
thanks for all your ideas and help guys!
