HELP, this is trying my patience

on Knoppix STD, how do i access FILES from the command line..i understand i have to mount something or another and cant seem to get it just right.. i want to access my files on C: on my Winblows machine like songs, floppy drive, etc..

what is the correct typing to do this?? i try mount , /mnt/ mount/ , and others but i always get some error..most likely cause i cant get the commands right.

edit..1 more thing..i cant even seem to open a picture i save from the internet on can i open a picture that i saved? clicking on it doesnt open it....

Try 'man mount'. You need to specify what you're mounting and where. As an example, on my machine, to mount my floppy drive:
mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
If you 'man fstab' you'll see that you can setup a file /etc/fstab to make mounting easier and available to normal users.
