Is there an entry for said partition in your /etc/fstab file? If so, is the "noauto" option there?

I'm assuming that the mount point is indicated in your fstab and that its just set to noauto. In which case you should probably remove that. Should look something like this:

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs umask=0022,nls=iso8859-1,ro 0 0

or in the case of a fat32 partition, something like this

/dev/hda9 /D vfat umask=0,defaults 0 0
