Mount the Windows partition. You can do this with:

Mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt

The /dev/hda1 should be replaced with the partition of your Windows files. The “a” represents the first IDE drive , if it’s the second IDE drive the “a” should be a “b” and so on. The “1” represents the partition on that particular drive. The “1” specifies the first partition on the drive. If your DOS is on the second partition then the “1” would be replaced with a “2”.

You can type “cat /proc/partitions” to see what drives and partitions you have on your system.

You're welcome. Put it in your /etc/fstab table. Use man fstab for details.
