the mount point is where the volume gets mounted to in the linux filesystem tree, so that linux/you can access the volume.
you may need to create the mount point.
very easy, 'mkdir /mnt/windows' then put that mount point at the end of the mount command that nylex gave you.

if you'd be mounting that volume quite often, i suggest adding an entry to your fstab. see man fstab for more info.
