mounting a hard drive


I am a newbie to linux and I am tryint to figure out how to mount my fat32 drive (should be hda1) so that I can view and write files to it in linux.

I have looked in /mnt but only found floppy and cd-rom directories.

Could someone give me the command to put it to mount my c:\?

You can add it to /etc/fstab also, have a look at fstab it's pretty self explanitory. man fstab if you want to see the details of what things are.

And you don't need a space between -t and filesystem, so
mount -tvfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/win yeilds the same results as
mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/win
