Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Run "mount" (with no options) to see which partitions are mounted. Run "fdisk -l" to see a list of partitions and their filesystem types (you'll probably need to run "sudo fdisk -l", actually). Use mount to mount the relevant partition (and see the man page for options you can use).
Please give us more info if you want a more detailed answer. What exactly is the problem you're having? Any error messages?
Oops forgot that. Thanx. Then again I wonder how does nautilus do the same thing? I had to create a directory in /mnt for this! What will happen the next time I log-on to the system?
nautilus most probably would be mounting the drives onto /media/<some directory>. I guess nautilus is doing this using udev rules ? I'm not very sure, somebody else should be able to throw more light on it.
