I just had to replace a hard drive and reinstall all of my Linux software. My computer has two internal 500 GB hard drives (hda & hdb) and one external USB hard drive (sda1). I have a dual boot configuration with Windows XP on hda and PCLinuxOS on hdb. Sda1 is used for backups. Both hda and sda1 are formatted NTFS.
My problem is that with the new installation I can not access hda from either Firefox or Thunderbird. Both programs will access sda1, and openoffice will read and write to all three drives. Firefox, Thunderbird, and openoffice are the versions that were installed with PCLOS, and they were installed and updated on Thursday. Any help resolving this problem will be greatly appreciated.
