How would I access PDF files in Windows from Mandrake 10.1


I have a number of Linux books in PDF form in Windows. I have Windows and Mandrake 10.1 Linux as a dual boot and can only run one OS at a time. How would I access those books from Mandrake so I could use them as ready tutorials for Linux. I'm new to Linux so please explain in basic terms. Thanks.

Well ... you can mount the partition from Linux, if it's
FAT you can r/w, if it's NTFS you can (out of the box)
commonly only read it.

Have a read of
man mount
