Unable to access windows drive.


Hi,
I am trying to access my windows xp drive from fedora linux OS, but unable to mount.
The command I used was "mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/win". This did not mount the windows drive. Am I required to do any setting in the /etc/fstab file or any other file that might be applicable?

Kindly help...

Cheers...raks.

How do you know? Were there any error messages? Are you using the right filesystem type and the right partition? Does the directory /mnt/win exist?
