you can only mount partitions so far i know. but i want that dir /win/desktop is c:\windows\desktop i simply mount c:/mnt/win and then type ln -s /mnt/win/windows/desktop /win and you can go to /win/desktop to see you c:\windows\desktop directory

Mounting Win Partations/directories on UNIX filesystems

It might pay to check up on the option syntax for the mount command for your UNIX machine as they can vary with UNIX flavour. For example, I can mount my WIN C drive on Linux machine (pationed with Windows) with the command:
mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /dosc

So for example, if you want to mount the C drive every time you log on to your machine, you could apply the following script in your .bashrc file (for BASH) or .cshrc (for C shell) in your home directory

if test -d /dosc; then
if test -s /dosc/boot.ini; then
echo "Dosc is mounted"
mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /dosc
mkdir /dosc
mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /dosc

which mounts the C drive on to the /dosc directory, upon startup.

Try to ensure you have no spaces in your Windows directories/files, that you are mounting to the UNIX files system.
