    Google! (The answer is everywhere on the Internet.)

    Or just:

    1) Create a directory where you want to mount the partition:
    Code:
    cd /mnt
    sudo mkdir windows
    2) Make a symlink for it in your home directory:
    Code:
    cd
    ln -s /mnt/windows
    3) Verify where the windows partition is present
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l | grep -i fat32
    If the result is /dev/hda1 (for example)
    4) Mount the partition
    Code:
    sudo mount -t vfat -o rw,noexec,umask=0000 /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows
    5) If you want it to be mounted automatically when you start your machine, add this line to /etc/fstab:
    /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat umask=0000,auto,noexec 0 0
    [/code]

    Have fun!
