Question Accessing Hardrives from VMWARE runnin linux redhat 7.3

I am running Red Hat 7.3 in Vmware on a Windows XP Professional host machine. My problem is that I am trying to acces the windows physical drives. i have given the vmware machine access to the physical drive and now I am trying to figure out how to mount them into the linux o.s. but cannot for the life of me figure out what the devices are called or what the command to mount them would be. Any help with this would be really appreciated ... I have also tried to acces them via the network but that does not seem to be woring either...

fdisk /dev/hda
and press 'p' to see all partitions (first disk), use 'q' to exit
Look which ones are Windows (I suppse NTFS). Let's say that one of them is /dev/hda1. To mount it use:
mkdir /mnt/win1
This creates a directory
mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/win1

To unmount use
umount /mnt/win1

Of course, it's similar with other partitions.
