This will tell you the partition(s) and the filesystem type(s).

As root from the console or xterm session try something like;

mkdir /mnt/win_drive
mount -t vfat /dev/hdb1 /mnt/win_drive
ls -al /mnt/win_drive
umount /mnt/win_drive

If you have more than one partition then make additional mountpoints as
desired. And if your filesystem(s) on hard drive are ntfs (Windows
NT or 2000 or XP) visit;

As Dan M has already stated read the man pages; 'man mount' 'man fstab'
