Drive mounting

Hey all I'm a newbie I admint it but this still is annoying me. I have two laptops on one I can mount my vfat windows partition just fine But the other refuses to do it. I am using the same comand mount -t vfat /dev/hda3 /windows yes I have verified the hda number but it always says no mount point for /windows I used the same disks to install Redhat 9 on each system but on the one that won't mount I just did the default desktop install instead of trying to pick my own packages. Any clues??

Make sure the /windows folder exists, and make sure you got the hd number right again. The command "fdisk -l" will list all partitions on /dev/hda.
