check what's mounted with:
make a dir to mount windows on:
mkdir /mnt/win
mount the windows
mount /dev/hda1 mnt/win
That should be enough. You can also specify the filetypes and such, check man mount
Windows will probably use NTFS which means you can't write to it, you can read. I don't know if kanotix supports writing to NTFS yet. Also, to mount the drive each time you restart it's better to list it in /etc/fstab
Something like:
/dev/hdb6            /windows/F           ntfs       ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=utf8 0 0
