Question Accidentally supermounted hd partition

Just installed Mandrake 9.0 a few days ago as a dual boot with Windows 98se. Here are my partitions:
c: Windows 98 / Linux
d, e, f, g, h, all fat 32.
i: Linux swap

I was messing with that poorly done partition manager in KDE and I accidentally supermounted my h: partition. Now I can't access it from Linux. I can see no way to undo this from the menu (this thing is NOT self-explanatory.) How do I edit this in my configuration so it doesn't appear as supermounted any more? (Please be specific as I'm just learning Linux.)

hmm dunno. to partition, i start up win and partition magic. not sure what supermounting is but if their is nothing of "value" on it, i'd just format it and remount it:
in shell type:
mount /<drive's mount point>
