Don't know why this would happen. Ideas? Suggestions??

Perhaps the 10.0 use smbfs to mount the windows partition and
the 10.2 does not have smbfs.

You could see if smbfs is mentioned in the fstab and replace it
with the appropriate cifs command.
Sorry, John, but this is completely wrong. SMB and CIFS are network protocols. HD partitions are structured using file systems: windows uses NTFS and FAT32.

The problem here, I think, is the way partitions are referred to in 10.2. IIRC, they are referred to by disk id, not by the usual hd[a-z] . As another poster said, YaST2 should know what to do.
