redhat won't recognize my fat32 drive


I just recently switch from mandrake to redhat. Mandrake recognized my windows drive (I'm using ME and talking about the C drive). Since I switched I haven't been able to locate the drive through linux, what do i need to do to be able to see it?

I'm in the same boat here.. I'm trying to get Redhat 9
to allow me to have access to it through Nautilus 2.2.1 on GNOME.

I can see it if I use a terminal window and folow the instructions listed at: http://www.reallylinux.com/docs/toptip3.shtml
which is to
1) Create a directory under Linux that will link to your Windows drive/partition
at the prompt type (only do this once): mkdir /mnt/win

2) Then mount your Windows drive and link it to this new directory under Linux at the prompt type exactly:
mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/win

3) Now try changing directories to your Windows drive/partition by typing
at the prompt: cd /mnt/win and then typing: ls -all

I can look but not play.

I get This: [root@Pimpmaster win]# cd /mnt/win
[root@Pimpmaster win]# ls -all
total 1344

however this is as far as I can get.
