You mean u want to mount your hard drive partition?
Then try 'man mount'

Basic syntax will be something like 'mount -o ro /dev/hda1 /mnt/hd' if u want to mount 1st partition on primary master hard drive. 'ro' stands for read only - u can use 'rw' instead but never try it on NTFS partition (unless u want to wipe your data -> always mount your NTFS as read only)

If u r not sure which device your hard drive is try 'fdisk -l' to get a list of all available ones.

PS: u need to be root to be able to run both mount and fdisk

Edit: And plz note that the directory u want to mount hard drive to (in our case '/mnt/hd') must exist.
