    The access will depend on the type of filesystem: fat32 or ntfs:

    ntfs will be read only:
    mount -r -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/data

    vfat:
    mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/data

    where hda1 represent the first partition of the first ide disc and
    /mnt/data any mount point (you can create it with mkdir)

    when you are able to access the data, just look at the /etc/fstab file
    and edit it to make your changes permanent (just add the necessary line).
    Just mimic the structure of the already present lines...
    If it don't work you can easily erase the faulty lines.
