I apologize if I'm way off base on this, but so much for jumping into the
middle of a thread.

Have you checked the file permissions in both windoze and linux??? I have
found that sometimes windoze throws its' own wonderful permissions on a file
which prevent it from being accessed from linux. Nothing seems wrong with
the file when looking at the permissions in linux, you just can't access the
file. Boot into windoze, change the permissions of the files in windoze,
then fire up linux and access the files. Give it a try.

Again, if I'm off base with my suggestion, please forgive me for jumping in.
