don't need any spesific s/w to acces your win partition if it lives on a same machine.
you just have to mount it to specified directory, also edit your /etc/fstab for your convenience
your /etc/fstab will sound like this
/dev/hda2 /mnt/transport vfat defaults 0 0

disk/partition place to mount type blah ... blah ....
there should be a better manual out there.
remember to make sure your kernel supports ntfs if you try to mount a ntfs win partition
the problem is i've been install / uninstall my mandrake many times (still trying to figure out how to install mplayer with the correct libraries) and from all my previous install, i swear i "did not" see windoze partition at all.
i have 2 hd, first has win98, and second has mandrake. i guess i need to figure out how to use that supermount or edit fstab in order for me to see window partition. i think its pretty cool that i can share files between this 2 hd
