to create a directory where you want to mount a FAT32 partition:
#mkdir /mnt/win_c
then to mount the FAT32 partition:
#mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/win_c

hda1 -> C Drive
hda5 -> D Drive
hda6 -> E Drive
hda7 -> F Drive

replace hda with hdb, hdc or hdd if the HDD is not primary master. use 'fdisk -l' to see what your disk is.

you need to be root to execute the above commands. you can put the following line in /etc/fstab file if you want the partition to be mounted on every reboot:

/dev/hda1 /mnt/win_c auto defaults 0 0
