It certainly is Have a read through the threads on here about mounting Windows drives. It differs slightly depending on whether you have a FAT32 or NTFS partition (the later probably meaning you'ld only have read access to your data). A quick Google search pulled this in as an easy howto - http://linux.org.mt/article/winmount

Not working

Hey I tried the James Attard thing.
But it is showing error messages after

%mount /dev/hda1 /c -t vfat

My drive partition is fat32 file system.
