in a terminal you can issue the command
man mount to see that linux can read ntfs and vfat formats.....subject to your kernel compiled for them or modules inserted for them.....lets assume so .....there are 2 ways to read those MS partitions
#######
one off......
in a terminal issue commands like this
su (and root password)
mkdir /ntfs
mkdir /fat
mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /ntfs
mount -t vfat /dev/hda2 /vfat

open a file manager to check

assuming MS is on your first drive, heh heh and is IDE change it if its not....post your /etc/fstab if any probs
#######
continous use...
in a terminal issue commands
su (and root password)
mkdir /ntfs
mkdir /fat
and if you are a beginner then issue command
konqueror to get root power file manager
navigate to /etc/fstab and add 2 lines to it like this

/dev/hda1 /ntfs ntfs notail 0 0
/dev/hda2 /fat vfat notail 0 0

with same disclaimer on your hardware configs as for the first way

and reboot to test

(2) if you do not want the person to have read/write powers but read only make the listing something like
ro,notail
(3) and with su powers you can change the access permissions for the folders /ntfs etc so your kids can not see them etc
