Into Linux from Windows? What do you mean? If you have Linux, use Linux to install the rpms. If you have Windows, then it won't run rpms. Could you clarify what you actually want to do?

You can mount a FAT32 drive from Linux. You can also mount NTFS drives for reading, but I wouldn't recommend it. Do "man mount" or have a google to find out more
