    Unhappy view Windows from Linux

    I'm on my way to bed, so instead of searching Google I figured I'd just post a question here.
    I've been running Mandrake 9.1 and was able to access my windows c:\ and d:\ where all my mp3's and picture files are, but as usual I messed somthing up and had to reinstall Linux.
    I don't know what I did on my first install, but on this install I am no longer able to mount my windows partitions..... everything else is working fine. Any ideas?

    Tried doing it manually?

    cd /mnt
    mkdir vfat
    mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/vfat

    your windows partition should then be viewable under /mnt/vfat

    In RH you would need to check your /etc/fstab file to make sure it was listed there, then you could mount it manually, or load it in your during boot in rc.local.

    what Win operating system ( file system ) are you using ??
