the LINUX kernel has support for a lot of drivers

it may happen that a suport for a hardware is not compiled in to ur knrel then u can either compile ur kernel for that support or get some xternal driver to support that

for seeing ur windows drives u need to mount them

a small mounting tuturial i had wrtten some time back

get that from here


PS: and please do HATE anyone here, all are trying to help
