Problems Mounting Windows Partitions

I have 80GB Hdd. Which has first three Windows Partitions and the last one as Linux ( Fedora Core 3 is Installed ). I am not able to access the windows Partitions from Linux even after using the Following commands

mount -t vfat \dev\hda1\mnt\

So kindly help me out.

I have my CD-Rom and Floppy Drive Mounted from the First it self.

Kind Regards

First, determine what device (/dev/hda1, etc..) is associated with your Windows partitions

Then to mount it, type:

mount -t vfat /dev/hdXX /mnt/windowsX

The above is just an example
