mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows

mount = command
-t = specifies the type so vfat follows it since that is the type of filesystem
/dev/hda1 = is the valid device and partition your mounting
/mnt/windows = the empty directory you create to mount the contents to view from

man mount for more details
