As comprookie2000 said, we need to know what filesystem is on those drives. But you can edit /etc/fstab to mount those drives, if you have linux on those drives chances are that they are all ready recognized all you have to do is mount the drives then copy the files. if the drives have windows xp on and the partition is in ntfs format
then you'll have to edit the /etc/fstab file. Firs i'll suggest that you tell us what the drive format is, then we be able to help you mount your drives.
