redirecting standard error

This old-fashioned way works with >> too. I can never remember the order of the symbols or that one has to redirect stdout first. From man bash, or see: The Unix Programming Environment p. 93.

ls > dirlist 2>&1

mounting an NTFS vol read-write on Slackware 12.1

From man ntfs-3g.

ntfs-3g volume mount_point [-o option[,...]]
mount -t ntfs-3g volume mount_point [-o option[,...]]

mount with -t ntfs or no -t option won't do it.
