    if your windows partition uses ntfs, you'll have to recompile your kernel and install a driver. once you've done that:
    Code:
    mkdir /mnt/windows
    mount -t ntfs /dev/hda2 /mnt/windows
    replacing /dev/hda2 with the windows drive/partition

    or if you use any sort of fat partition, you're set from the get-go:
    Code:
    mkdir /mnt/windows
    mount -t vfat dev/hda2 /mnt/windows
    replacing /dev/hda2 with the windows drive/partition

    As far as I knew, mandrake stock kernels (default) have the NTFS driver compiled in, you'll only need to specify that it's the ntfs filesystem.
