#mkdir /windows

mount the dos(FAT32) partition to /window

mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /window

here /dev/hda1 is the partition u want to mount.

shivsa already show you the way to access your FAT32 (the windoz partition)

I'm just put some add on for you. if you need to access windoz partition every time you boot up your linux, add the line below to your /etc/fstab

/dev/hda1               /window                    vfat    defaults        1 2

also all the above (including shivsa's suggestions, you got to be login as root)

if you need to access your linux data from your M$ windoz, you got to install a 3rd party software have a look here http://uranus.it.swin.edu.au/~jn/linux/explore2fs.htm

hope this info can help :)

Dear new user to Linux 9.0,
       Above all answers are 100% correct but as  u said that you are a new user so i would like to add......

1) create a new folder in /mnt, say windows
2) go to terminal and type
3) mount vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows

now this hda1 depends on the partition location, you must specify the location where windows is installed.
