Q: How do you access a fat32 windows partion?

A: [overview] You have to mount the partition, then you can do whatever you want (with the right commands). To mount the partition, use:

mount -t fat32 /dev/<partition> /<desired_directory_mountpoint>

For example:

<partition> might be hda1 <desired_directory_mountpoint> might be /mnt/windows_c


mount -t fat32 /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows_c

See man mount.
