Reading Windows Partitions on RedHat

I have two 80GB hard drives installed in my computer. One hard drive its for Windows XP, the other one has 5 partitions. Three of them are from Red Hat and the other two i created in Windows. One partition is NTFS and the other one is FAT32. I want to read the FAT32 partition while i am using Red Hat, can i do it? If its possible how can i make it accessible?

You have to write the /etc/fstab file and add there the line

/dev/hd(leter and number) mount point filesystem options 0 0

this for automounting the partition at boot time

for reading right now, just type mount /dev/hd(letter and number) mount point

Note that you'll have to create the mount point previously

Hope it helps

PS: I'm not pretty sure wich filetype you have to put for reading NTFS, read the man of fstap or mount
