How to Mount Windows partitions on boot*up

Plz give me the command to mount the partitions in bootup.I am using FC5 and can it be possible to boot more than one drive at a drive...
I can mount the drives in FC5 but one at a time. When I mounted another partition then the second one replaced the earlier one. Now is it possible to mount all the drives simulteneously

You need to add entries to your /etc/fstab for each partition you want to mount. You'll also need to create mount points for each of them. To have partitions automatically mounted on boot, add "auto" to the options list (the 4th column) of the relevant line(s) in fstab. There's a guide to fstab here. If you need more help, give us info about how your partitions are laid out and what filesystems they're using.
