SuSE Pro and my Windows Parition

I just recently bought a SuSE book at borders after sitting there for an hour reading it. It seemed like there was so much to answer my questions right there in that book. It also came with a copy of SuSE Professional, so I installed it. I like it so far. But, onto my question... I remember seeing something in the installation saying that it was mounting my windows partition. I thought to myself, "Wow, it found that partition and is mounting it for me !" This made me happy, because I figured getting to my music would be that much easier. However, now that everything is up and running, I don't know where the partition was mounted, or even if it was actually mounted in the first place ? Does anybody know the default mount point where SuSE would have put it ? Thanks in advance.

Check out your /etc/fstab. That tells where things in your system are being mounted. If you are not sure where or how that works, post that file here

Thanks. I don't know why I didn't think of checking in etc/fstab.
