Should be something along the lines of :

Code:
mount -t msdos /dev/hda /mnt/point

try using "mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/win98 (or whatever directory you want)". I also make sure the mount point exist and also you mention typing the commands into the file explorer.By this I assume you mean konqueror,galeon,etc.These commands should be typed in the terminal.
