As root
Make a mount point
mkdir /mnt/share
mount the disk
mount -t vfat /dev/hd*# /mnt/share
replace * with the drive and # with the partition.

you can also add a line to your fstab. assuming that you have a folder named share in the mnt directory:

/dev/hd3 /mnt/share vfat noauto,user 0 0

then to access:

cd /mnt
mount shared
cd shared

the fstab is from memory but that should be right
