how do i see my windows directories and file in fedora core 3 linux?

try mounting your windows partition giving the following command:

mount -t vfat <mount dir> <mount point>

but first you check your /etc/fstab file. the windows partition should be mentioned over there. the fstype is fat32. the mount point can be any dir in fedora u wish to mount for eg. /usr/mountp....
the <mount dir> in the fstab is the partition on which you have windows.

edit your fstab file in the following way:
/dev/Y /mnt/X ntfs users,owner,ro,umask=000 0 0
then type mount -a on your konsole.

you should be root of course for doing all this

So I was right that the Fedora kernel lacked ntfs support. Anyway I'm glad you got it working fine.
