why did you post this in NETWORKING??? are you refering to remote windows??

if you are talking about local partitions, you need to edit your /etc/fstab file...

you wanna put a line in there that looks like this:

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat defaults 0 0

of course you'll probably need to customize the drive/partition, the mount point, the filesystem, etc...
