Mounting partitions


I have an old 60mhz pentium with a 500mb fat16 hard drive. I want to copy all the files off of it and onto another computer on my network. How can I mount that partition on another computer, or send the files from the computer using ftp or something to my ftp server.
Any suggestions?

60mhz Pentium
24mb Ram
NIC
CD-ROM
Floppy
500mb hd with windows 3.11 workgroup installed

You could use smbmount if you have set up a workgroup share on the windows box.

Thanks for the reply
There are no drivers for windows 3.11 for my ethernet card though
Could you recommend a boot cd(that has a boot floppy to load from it first since my bios doesn't support booting from cd) that I can use to share the drive over the network, or give me an ftp client to upload the files?

I'm fairly sure knoppix will boot from a floppy:
