Accessing Windows Downloaded Files from LINUX

I have just downloaded all of the .tgz files for the 3.1.1 installation of XFree86.  These were downloaded using Internet Explorer and are now in a folder in Windows (I have a dual boot system with three partitions swap/Windows95/Linux).  I have installation instructions for Linux, but how do I access these files from Linux as they are saved in my Windows Folder in a different partition?

You should mount Windows partition first. Use this command:
*if you enable vfat support in kernel:
      mount -t vfat /dev/<Windows-partition> /mnt
*if you're not
      mount -t msdos /dev/<Windows-partition> /mnt
Directory /mnt should exist, and after that you can access Windows partition from Linux.
hope it can help ....
