Where did you plug it in? As in which IDE/SCSI channels?

Also is it NTFS formatted? If it is then you will probably need to recompile your kernel for NTFS read support (I don't know if RH8.0 has this option compiled in by default).

Assuming that you have added it to the same IDE cable as your primary disk (so the windows one is /dev/hdb) and that you have kernel support for the filesystem on the disk, you should be able to mount it with the following.

1) create a directory to mount it to e.g. /mnt/Win
2) run mount -t ntfs /dev/hdb /mnt/Win

You probably already have FAT support built into your kernel.

The correct fstype is vfat though.

do the following as root
modprobe vfat
mount -t vfat /dev/hdc /mnt/Win

i tried what you said.....
and it says.....

[root@localhost mnt]# modprobe vfat
[root@localhost mnt]# mount -t vfat /dev/hdc /mnt/Win
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc,
or too many mounted file systems

that means vfat module does not exist. you will need to recompile your kernel and make sure you include a vfat module. Then, follow the previous directions. As far as kernel compiling goes, there is a wealth of info...search this site and google.

\edit.
wait up...the modprobe didnt report any errors. how does your /etc/fstab look like?
