mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /c_drive

this is assuming that your main hard drive has one partition it.
its also assuming that you create a directory (empty) in your root
directory called c_drive.

when you run this command you can then cd /c_drive and it will
show you the files from your C drive(if you have compiled your
kernel to be able to read dos and window95 filesystems.

but like the other fellow said. read, read, drink coffee, and read some
when you get sick of reading, go out and surf the web looking for linux
and pointers.

pretty soon, you'll be cursing windows95 with the best of us :)
