Mounting fat32 partition in Mandrake 10.1

`kay, here's the deal.

I'm getting ready to install Mandrake 10.1 on a friend's computer. She's only used Windows before this, specifically no further than 98 se. At one time, using Redhat 7.1 (or possibly later) I got instructions on mounting the Fat32 partition so that I could transfer some files.

I'd like to do the same thing with her's so that she doesn't lose some pertanent writings and such, but I've since lost the commands that allow me to do that.

Anyone have a suggestion?

Yeah, absolutely, that's how I mount a drive....however, As I recall there was something I needed to enter in the mount variables to get it to recognize a fat32 partition...
