Boot from your linux OS, login as root and in the terminal/shell type this
mkdir /mnt/win_c
make as much as you have windows partitions
mount /dev/hdb1 /mnt/win_c (assuminb that your C drive is hdb1)
Viola! you got your data in linux :wink:

for unmount use
umount /mnt/win_c (make sure you are not using any files from the /mnt/win_c directory otherwise you will get resource busy error)

if you want to mount your windows partitions by default whenever you boot from you linux edit your /etc/fstab file.

hmmm, how to edit this??? Do it yourself its yours assignment :P

A: Yes
Q: Is top-posting bad?
