Need help on being able to access my WIN98 partition from Linux

I have a Win98 partition configured for FAT32, and I have Linux on my second partition, but for some reason I can't access my FAT32 from within Linux. I've tried to mount it with; mount /dev/hda1 , but nothing seems to work. It could be very possible that I'm doing something wrong? Go figure. In case it is any help, I am running Red Hat 6.0

First be sure the windows partition is on /dev/hda1.   Do 'fdisk /dev/hda' and make sure that hda1 is a windows partition.  Then create a mount directory, say /mnt/windows, with

mkdir /mnt/windows

Then do

mount /dev/hda1 -t vfat /mnt/windows

and you should see your windows files.  
When you run the mount command you must tell mount WHERE the partition is to appear.  In the DOS world you'd call it D: or E: or whatever.  Here you make it appear on /mnt/mountpoint (or whatever other subdirectory you like.)
