Unhappy Cannot mount windows extended partition ?


Hello
I've seen, reading this forum, that you can't mount a extended windows partition in linux.

I have a windows D: Drive wich contains 10 Gb of data and I can't mount it.

This is what fdisk tells me :

Périphérique Amorce Début Fin Blocs Id Système
/dev/hda1 * 1 261 2096451 6 FAT16
/dev/hda2 262 674 3317422+ 85 Linux étendu
/dev/hda3 675 2501 14675377 + f Win95 Etdue (LBA)
/dev/hda5 262 292 248976 83 Linux
/dev/hda6 644 674 248976 82 Echange Linux
/dev/hda7 293 643 2819376 83 Linux

My data is on hda3

Is there anyway I can acces this data trough Linux ?

mount -t vfat /dev/hda3 /etc/films
doesn't work



Thanx

It says :

mount : type fs incorrect, option incorrecte, superbloc incorrect sur /dev/hda3,
ou trop de systèmes de fichiers montés
(aren't you trying to mount an extended partition,
instead of some logical partition inside?)
