FAT32 has been supported for awhile but you need a 2.4.18 or higher kernel for NTFS support http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/
You can edit your "/etc/fstab" file to automatically mount your M$ partitions. To find out how, do "man fstab"
Here is the line from my "/etc/fstab" that mounts my FAT32 partition:
/dev/hdc1 /mnt/hd/c/1 vfat umask=007,uid=500,gid=500 0 0
