mount -f vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/win1 works but doesn't last after restarting.
If you want to automount your windows partition edit your fstab...
here is a step by step instruction:
create a directory /mnt/win
you will see a list of mounts, just add the following line (remember to change the names according to your settings.)
to your fstab:
/dev/hda1 /mnt/win vfat user,umask=222 00
this gives you read only access to your win partition....
umask=000 (this gives you full write access to the drive/win partition)
umask=022 (only root has full write access to the drive/win partition)
I recomend that you only use read access to avoid accidental problems and errors to your win partition...
