if you're not yet comfortable using the command line interface, now's
the time to get your feet wet :D
lets assume your windows partition is installed in hda1 and is using
ntfs, here is how you do it:

$ sudo mkdir /media/windows
$ sudo mount /dev/hda1 /media/windows/ -t ntfs -o nls=utf8,umask=0222

if its in fat partition:

$ sudo mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /media/windows

to unmount the windows partition:

$ sudo umount /media/windows
