adding partitioned drive on redhat 8.0

on my hard drive i have
4 gb linux native
linux swap
4 gb ntfs
45 gb fat32

i want to be able to mount the 45 gb fat32 partition "hda4" on redhat linux 8.0 so it can be used as a shared partition between my windows and the redhat

If it isn't already added (by the installer), do the following (logged on as root, at a command prompt):
mkdir /mnt/dos<Enter>
Edit /etc/fstab and add the line
/dev/hda4 /mnt/dos vfat defaults 0 0
then mount it with
mount /mnt/dos<Enter>

You can check what is mounted with
... look for /dev/hda4 ...:-).

When it is mounted, you can access it via the mountpoint /mnt/dos (you can choose most any mountpoint, but this seems appropriate, doesn't it?-).
