You need to mount the partitions. Which distribution do you use? If it's MDK as you have in your profile, you should be able to access Windows partitions in /mnt (directories like /mnt/win_c, /mnt/win_d).

As root:
mkdir /mnt/windows_c
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows_c -o umask=0

Now your files will be in /mnt/windows_c. 'mkdir' makes a directory, the mentioned 'mount' command mounts your first partition on the first hard drive (hda1) to the newly created directory. The '-o umask=0' lets regular users access. To do all this automatically on startup, search for info on the /etc/fstab file.
