re: how to view files from windows xp on fedora

check the partion to be mounted with
>fdisk -l
>mkdir /mnt/your-partition-name
if partion is fat32
>mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/your-partiion-name
if partion is ntfs install specific kernel module rpm from for NTFS
>mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/your-partiion-name

substitute the correct name for hda1 as in your case

you can add this line to /etc/fstab for automated mounting on boot

/dev/hda1 /mnt/your-partition-name ntfs ro,defaults,umask=0222 0 0

google for : mount windows partion in linux
