To mount them when you boot, edit your /etc/fstab and add the dirve. I have two w98 partitions mounted. Here are my entries.

/dev/hda1 /mnt/win_c vfat codepage=850,iocharset=iso8859-1,umask=0 0 0
/dev/hda5 /mnt/win_d vfat codepage=850,iocharset=iso8859-1,umask=0 0 0
You also have to make a directory entry. I did a md at /mnt/win_c (my windows C drive) and one for /mnt/win_d (my windows D drive). That should be it.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
