Well I know for sure you can most likely use:
That should list all your partitions and the filesystem type. And no, Win2k isn't always NTFS, it can be formatted as FAT32 which you'd probably much rather prefer if you want to write to it from within Linux, as that is totally safe to do.
mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows <-- if its ntfs, if its fat32, you'd mount replace ntfs with vfat. Search the forums as this has been asked and answered all the time.
