LVM issues

I am trying to set up a dual boot XP and FC4 machine. Both OSs are installed and working fine. I have a fat32 partition set up to be able to share files between OSs, but I can't mount it in FC4. I tried setting up a mount point and then adding it to /etc/fstab, but that doesn't seem to work. I don't quite know what to put in /etc/fstab due to my lack of experience with LVM and its naming conventions.

here is my /etc/fstab:
# This file is edited by fstab-sync - see 'man fstab-sync' for details
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
/dev/shm /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/sys /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrecorder auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0

here is the output of fdisk -l:
Disk /dev/hda: 40.0 GB, 40007761920 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 4864 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 1 2 16033+ ce Unknown
/dev/hda2 1487 4864 27133785 17 Hidden HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda3 1232 1486 2048287+ 1c Hidden W95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/hda4 3 1231 9871942+ 5 Extended
/dev/hda5 3 15 104391 83 Linux
/dev/hda6 16 1231 9767488+ 8e Linux LVM

* hda1 is a Dell utility partition.
* hda2 is XP.
* hda3 is the fat32 shares partition.
* the rest is the LVM info.

thanks in advance.

never mind, I figured it out. If anyone else is interested, I used the following as a guide:

and added the following line to /etc/fstab:
/dev/hda3 /transfer vfat users,owner,ro,umask=000 0 0

where '/transfer' is the mount point I chose to use.
