How to get RedHat to read FAT partition ?

Woot. I got RedHat 8.0 installed dual boot with Win2k last night.
It was the first time I have installed it, and it was a whole lot easier than I was expecting it to be. The GUI is really pimp and it comes with fucking every application and utility you could want !

The only thing I am having issues with is figuring out how to get Linux to read the data on my FAT partitions. Is this natively supported or do I do I need to download a utility of some sort ?

I don't know how to explain it, but here is an example of mine, I have 2 fat partitions c and d, so I added win_c and win_d to my mnt dir and added the following to /etc/fstab

/dev/hda1 /mnt/win_c vfat user,exec,rw 0 0
/dev/hda5 /mnt/win_d vfat user,exec,rw 0 0

This will automatically mount your fat partitions wihen you boot.

Good move, I added all my nfs shares like that as well to the fstab, but I rarely reboot so sometimes when I add a new share I forget to add it to the fstab, the puter reboots because of power issuses and I forget my shares causing issues such as my aim sounds are on abecx.net, sometimes when it didnt mount right, I wouldnt have an AIM sounds!

Nothing life threating!
