Vector asks for any windows' partitions to be added at installation stage and mounts it every time it's booted. seems like you've missed this moment at setup.

Anyways, try this post http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-general-1/mount-disk-630112/
I think editing your /ets/fstab file according to post would mount it on boot


or


wait for someone smarter to answer your question :D

I have run into interesting situation.
Moving 5 machines office from windows to Linux.
Two machines now are vl and 3 machines windows xp sp2.
Have shared folders on Linux machines using samba server.
Now, windows machines can read/write on shared folders from Linux machines.
Linux machines while being able to read/write shared folders on windows machines, can't see or read/write on each other shared folders.
Question is, how can i make Linux machines see each others shared folders?

Sorry, that doesn't tell me much as a newbie. In fact it doesn't help me even a bit.
Sorry.

I'm unable to change keyboard layout with CTRL+SHFT.
How can I configure it?

The Keyboard switch applet works just fine though.

hmm, do you have something special in your .Xmodmap?, look for any of this combinations from the gentoo wiki:

Quote
   1. grp:switch — toggle using right alt key, but only until unpressed
   2. grp:lswitch — Left Alt key switches group while pressed
   3. grp:lwin_switch — Left Win-key switches group while pressed
   4. grp:rwin_switch — Right Win-key switches group while pressed
   5. grp:win_switch — Both Win-keys switch group while pressed
   6. grp:toggle — Right Alt key changes group
   7. grp:lalt_toggle — Left Alt key changes group
   8. grp:caps_toggle — Caps Lock key changes group
   9. grp:shift_caps_toggle — Shift+CapsLock changes group
  10. grp:shift_toggle — Both Shift keys together change group
  11. grp:alts_toggle — Both Alt keys together change group
  12. grp:ctrls_toggle — Both Ctrl keys together change group
  13. grp:ctrl_shift_toggle — Control+Shift changes group
  14. grp:ctrl_alt_toggle — Alt+Control changes group
  15. grp:alt_shift_toggle — Alt+Shift changes group
  16. grp:menu_toggle — toggle using "context menu" key on Windows keyboards
  17. grp:lwin_toggle — toggle using left win key on Windows keyboards
  18. grp:rwin_toggle — toggle using right win key on Windows keyboards
  19. grp:lshift_toggle — Left Shift key changes group
  20. grp:rshift_toggle — Right Shift key changes group
  21. grp:lctrl_toggle — Left Ctrl key changes group
  22. grp:rctrl_toggle — Right Ctrl key changes group

May be adding the keyboard side like lctrl_lshift?
Ooops, my boss is comming...  :P

Thank you for the link.

I've put
Code: [Select]
Option "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle"in Section "InputDevice" and it do switches layout, but only with right ALT+SHFT. Adding "l" to both alt and shift doesn't work. In fact it stops to switch keyboard even with right keys.
Is there any way to make it switch keyboard with left key combination?

I am pretty sure you are dealing with keyboard mapping issue. Try at the console

xmodmap -e "add Control=Control_L"

After running that command try the combination again. If it is fixed we will find a definitive fix based on that.
