view fat32 in linux dual boot XP


ok this is my problem i have Linux Red Hat 7.2 installed and Iam a complete newbie, I have a dual boot system with XP ( which was installed first) and I want to access my fat32 partitions which would be hda1 and hda6. I have read alot of the answers of similar questions and how-to- documents and none seem to help the wine-c directory is located in /usr/share/ and I have tried fstab and the partitions are not mounted, amd the hda1 and hda6 are located in /dev/i2o/ and I do not know why I can not mount them. I have root privelidges but still I do not have permissions, and the system is still freshly installed so I did not have a chance to mess it up .
So to anyone who can help what must I do?????????????

" the hda1 and hda6 are located in /dev/i2o/ and I do not know why I can not mount them."

I think that you are trying to mount the wrong devices. Try:
mkdir /lee
mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /lee
mkdir /grant
mount -t vfat /dev/hda6 /grant

You can look at /etc/fstab and find the default directories and file system types for /dev/hda1 and /dev/hda2.

in addition if you want those partitions be mounted when system starts edit /etc/fstab and add the following strings at the end of the file:

/dev/hda1 /mnt/lee vfat auto,umask=0 0 0
/dev/hda6 /mnt/grant vfat auto,umask=0 0 0

after rebooting they should be accessible from /mnt/lee and /mnt/grant
