are you trying to access a Windows C: drive on another machine, or another hard drive?
to mount a separate partition on the same machine, you just need to know the filesystem and the partition designation. XP is almost certainly NTFS filesystem, and the designation will be something like /dev/hda1. open a terminal and type
and add/edit the following line:
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs ro,umask=000 0 0
(make sure /dev/hda1 corresponds to your windows drive, hda1 will be the first partition on the primary master ide drive, if you know what that means)
now press ctrl-x then ctrl-s to save, and ctrl-x then ctrl-c to exit, and you should be able to access that mount by typing any of these:
and if you want it to mount automatically at bootup, add "auto" before "ro,umask" etc.
