Apparently you didn't take my advice and tried searching did you ?This is asked quite often and there are many threads already explaining this.
But it usually goes something like this:
mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows
ls -al <shows a complete listing of files and directories on your windows drive/parition.>
Breakdown of the command to mount:
mount = command used to mount
-t = to specify the type of filesystem is used
vfat = is the example filesystem used, other popular filesystems windows uses is msdos and ntfs
/dev/hda1 = the partition were mounting that windows actually resides on
/mnt/windows = the empty directory used to mount the files to for viewing.
