cd /mnt
mkdir windows1 windows2

This will create two directories named windows1 and windows2.

Now you can mount the vfat partitions like this:

mount -t vfat /dev/hdaX /mnt/windows1

and do the same for the other one to windows2 and substitute the hdaX for the number of the partition it resides on.

If you want these to mount automatically at bootup, just edit and add them to your /etc/fstab file accordingly.
