Various distros have their own ways of detecting and mounting drives. first look in /mnt or /media to see if it is automatically setting up mount points---also see if there are entries in /etc/fstab.

fdisk -l will tell you all the partitions that the system can see. Let's assume you want to mount /dev/hda3. If there is an entry in /etc/fstab, and a mountpoint somewhere, then you could simply enter:

mount /dev/hda3
OR
mount <name_of_mountpoint>

Otherwise:
mkdir /mnt/hda3 (or any name you want to give it)
mount /dev/hda3 /mnt/hda3

Ok I finishing mounting it, BUT the Windows NTFS CANT be seen in konqueror in Mandriva. But When I go to konsole: it displays..

[root@localhost mnt]# cd hda1 ---> i make dir name hda1
[root@localhost hda1]# ls --> this is my Windows Files
ATI/ Downloads/ menu.lst PcSx/ sqmdata01.sqm t2rg
AUTOEXEC.BAT dump_dvd.vob MOVIES/ Program Files/ sqmdata02.sqm tlinux6/
boot.ini grldr MSDOS.SYS PromoPlugin.log sqmnoopt00.sqm $VAULT$.AVG/
boot_ini.tl6 hiberfil.sys mybackup.bkf RECYCLER/ sqmnoopt01.sqm WINDOWS/
Brother/ img1-001.raw MySites/ sample.txt sqmnoopt02.sqm YServer.txt

Config.Msi/ libSRTP_log.txt NTDETECT.COM SIERRA/ t1ts
CONFIG.SYS linux.jpg ntldr sierria/ t258
Documents and Settings/ logs/ pagefile.sys sqmdata00.sqm t2cc

Questions:
1.Why is't my NTFS partition cant be seen in konqueror but I can see it in my konsole. And how to make it work?
2.How to give permission to my NTFS files to make it accessible to Mandriva or to other distro?
3.Also, I mounted the kubuntu in my Mandriva (in /mnt/hd)but also I have no Permission. Lets say I want all my files in kubuntu to be accessible in Mandriva do I need to command this in my kubuntu files: (chmod 777).

ok, first install ntfs-3g.
then

#mkdir /media/xp
#gedit(or any other tex editor) /etc/fstab

and add

/dev/hda1 /media/xp ntfs-3g defaults 0 0

(btw just press tab between columns) save, then

#mount -a

then go to /media/xp in konqueror and you should have permissions

On my system (PCLOS 2007 / KDE), the windows folders are visible in Konqueror after I mount the partition)

How would the files be visible in the terminal without having an NTFS driver installed??

That is one way of achieving what you want. However, it amounts to setting the doors wide open to anyone. It may be easier and it certainly is safer to ensure that you have the same user and groups IDs on both systems.
