converting file systems (FAT32 to NTFS)

People who still have FAT32, usaly have 2 or more operating systems running on their computer. An example of that is like runnging OS x over Windows 95 or XP. Stuff like that. On one of my lap tops, I have Linux, Unix, and OS x running on one HD. The OS x runs really really slow thought...I hardly ever use it. Any way. For people who are conncerned about converting their FAT32 File System to NTFS (Windows NT File System...Get it?) you should go ahead and click START, then open up 'RUN' and type in 'COMMAND'. When you type that in it should open up you MS-DOS Command prompt. From there, type in...'convert C:/fs:ntfs'
It will walk you through the whole prosses, and guide you around.

If you were interested in this Post, I hope it has helped you. If my command prompt is wrong please let me know. Thanks...Mike...

NTFS-3G.USERMAP(8)					      System Manager's Manual						NTFS-3G.USERMAP(8)

ntfs-3g.usermap - NTFS Building a User Mapping File SYNOPSIS
ntfs-3g.usermap windows-system-device [other-ntfs-device...] Where windows-system-device is the device containing the Windows system whose users are to be mapped to current Linux system. And other-ntfs-device is another device containing files which are to be accessed both by the Windows mentioned above and current Linux system. the ntfs-3g.usermap command must be started as root, and the designated devices must not be mounted. Typing ntfs-3g.usermap with no args will display a summary of command arguments. DESCRIPTION
ntfs-3g.usermap creates the file defining the mapping of Windows accounts to Linux logins for users who owns files which should be visible from both Windows and Linux. It relies on existing files which were created on Windows, trying to locate significant files and asking which Linux user or group should own them. When a Linux owner or group is requested, the reply may be : - the uid or gid (numeric or symbolic) of Linux owner or group of the file. In that situation, no more file with the same Windows owner will be selected. - or no answer, when not able to define the owner or group. In that situation another file owned by the same Windows user or group may be selected later so that a mapping can be defined. The mappings for standard Windows users, such as "Administrator" or "All Users" are defined implicitly. As a consequence a user mapping should never be defined as Linux root. When there are no more significant files, ntfs-3g.usermap create the mapping file into the file UserMapping in the current directory. This file has to be moved to the hidden directory .NTFS-3G in the root of all the NTFS file systems to be shared between Windows and Linux. This requires the file system to be mounted, but the created file will not be taken into account if not present at mount time, which means the file system has to be unmounted and mounted again for the new mapping file to be taken into account. OPTIONS
No option is defined for ntfs-3g.usermap. EXAMPLES
Map the users defined on the Windows system present on /dev/sda1 : ntfs-3g.usermap /dev/sda1 A detailed example, with screen displays is available on EXIT CODES
ntfs-3g.usermap exits with a value of 0 when no error was detected, and with a value of 1 when an error was detected. KNOWN ISSUES
