If you do not see any messages then the command completed successfully.
The mount command without any options will show all mounted filesystems. If you see /hda7 then it is mounted.

Also look at the output of the df -h command to see if there is used space on the partition.

And no error messages? Have you tried mounting again?

just to clarify, you first created /mnt/drive (mkdir /mnt/drive) and then tried the mount command right? and further, there has to be a space between the partition and the mount point (which can be unclear sometimes) like this:

mount -t vfat /dev/hda7 /mnt/drive


this space ------------^


then you can

cd /mnt/drive
ls

to see what's there.
