Welcome to LQ!
First of all, what distro are you using? If you put this in your profile, it helps us to answer your questions.
I assume that the partition with your music is formatted as FAT32. You need to find out what partition it is (For example hda1, hda2 or whatever). Then you need to create a mount point, say /media/music. As root, "mkdir /media/music". Then mount it, using
mount -t vfat /dev/hdx /media/music
where hdx is whatever partition it is. Once you have mounted it, go "cd /media/music" and then "ls" to see your files.
Depending on the distro that you are using, it may be automatically mounted. Check in /media or /mnt to see if your files are there already.
