comment Is it possible to install Windows and Linux on the same partition?
I'd think filesystem permissions might be a problem. What tools are you going to use to set NTFS perms from linux? How will you map between GID/UID numbers and SIDs? Or don't you care about file security. NOte the link above is actually installing Linux on an ext 4 partition, that is stored as a file on NTFS. The kernel is not actually executing from NTFS.

BSDs (that's Berkeley Systems DISTRIBUTION) do. Net, Free, Open, etc. But if it makes you feel better I am happy to concede that I could have worded my response better and I did. And for the reasons above - I did assume that on the balance of probabilities that the OP probably was using a Linux. I wasn't sure - but I did think it likely that the OP was a linux user. Feel better? Vonbrand appears to have made the same assumption. And hasn't even made a token qualifcation/disclaimer. Sic him!

Nothing. Which is why I qualify my response with: "Are you by chance running Fedora or Redhat? If so SE Linux might be the problem." But chances are these days a newbie unix user is gonna be using Linux - but I did consider the scenario they might not be or even if they were were not running an SELinux enabled distro and qualified accordingly. I've been a pedant for a long time now. :-)

comment Why can't I navigate into my Documents directory?
in addition to running "whoami" please run "id" id gives far more useful info than whoami for these sorts of problems. I'd also run "ls -ln" the permissions really operate on the numeric values not the symbolic names of users and groups. In fact, please run this - it will also let us see the SElinux file contexts if any - id will show your user context, if any: pwd; ls -lZ . : ls -lZn .; ls -lZ ; ls -lZn; id

So make file1 and file2 match your required filenames. You have to do some of the work yourself.
