Welcome, below is my list of common Linux problems and how to fix them, if you would like help with a problem please post it.

I assume you are using Bash as the terminal.

Q: How do I mount my Windows partition?
A: Most file systems should be safe to mount and to write to except NTFS, you should only mount a NTFS file systems as RO (read-only) if you write to a NTFS file system you may damage data.

Below is an example of how to mount a FAT32 partition:

1. First make a folder to mount the file system onto, such as '/mnt/windows'
2. Open fstab in '/etc'
3. Add the line:

/dev/hda2 /mnt/windows vfat defaults 0 0

(change '/dev/hda2' to where you windows partition is, to find out where it is type 'fdisk -l')
(change '/mnt/windows' to where you want to mount the partition)
(change vfat if your not using a FAT file system)
(leave at defualts unless there is a problem, use 'ro' if it's a NTFS file system!)
( '0 0' do not change unless there is a problem)

4. Save and reboot

More to be added soon when I get some free time
Remember to post if you have a problem.
