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.

Are the device nodes stored in /mnt? I think they are in /dev
Here's what I would do.
# mkdir /mnt/hda1
# mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1
If that works, then add a line to /etc/fstab as root...
/dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1 vfat user,defaults 0 0
First column tells the system the device to be mounted. Second tells where. Third tells FS type. Fourth tells options, in this case, users will be able to control it, and it will have default properties. And I honestly don't know what the 5th and 6th columns do. I just know that they are needed.
Hope this helps

Reason: Provide more info
Your english is better than many who have it as their first language.......
Summary of advice already given:
"mount" is normally in the form:
mount <partition> <mountpoint>
You can delete one of these IF the desired mapping is already in fstab or mtab (I'm fuzzy on the latter since I thought mtab was supposed to be the list of what was already mounted...)
This will help fill in the details..
