    Check manpage for mount command, $ man mount
    You could also put mount details in /etc/fstab to make it mount your windoze partition automagically.
    If all else fails, google for "Linux mount windows".

    Really, easiest thing is to put an entry in /etc/fstab for it. You would put something like:
    Code:
    /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat auto,ro,umask=0222,uid=501  0  0
    Of course, you need to change the appropriate bits, such as the device, mount point and uid for example, based on the machine and user. As pointed out, the manpage will explain these.
