First of all is the windows volume Fat or NTFS?
Second is the drive IDE or Serial ATA?

It's too late for me to dig around, but do a search of the archive. What you need to do is to download ntfs support to mount an ntfs volume as it doesn't ship with fedora. Note that write support can be dangerous to the volume

C:/ drive is NTFS
D:/ drive is FAT32

Linux is installed on a 7 GB partition which has 5.5 GB "/"
space and remaining space for "swap".

Hdd is normal ATA . I am using laptop.

I've answered a similar problem here.
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ng+XP+from+FC5

Basically you have to create mount points, normally in /mnt ie,
/mnt/windowsfat
/mnt/windowsntfs

make entries in /etc/fstab to get them to auto mount with desired permissions.
That takes care of the fat drive, you can read and write to that.

as already mentioned the ntfs file system needs an extra kernel module, and writing to it is not advised.

With respect to decrepit's post, the key link in there is probably

http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_cor...otes.html#NTFS

As I mentioned previously, you probably need NTFS support
