The following cookbook style guide should help you to mount windows
partitions on linux

1> first check out the list of partition you have
   such as hda1,hdb1, hdd3 etc .. whatever depending
   on whether yor IDE drive is configured to work as
   Primary/Secondary Master/Slave 

2> There are two ways of mounting Windows Partitions
   1> mounting them using the mount command as follows

      create a directory under /mnt such as windows
      mkdir -p /mnt/windows

      mount the windows partiton as follows (replacing hda1 with   
      the proper device
      mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows

   2> mount the partition at bootime by adding entries to /etc/fstab
      append the following line to /etc/fstab
      /dev/hda1  /mnt/windows vfat defaults       0 0

:) hope this helps
