I was going to ask 'F1' for help, but I worked it out, so here it is,

step 1
Edit /etc/fstab file, put in
dev/hda1 mnt/C:drive vfat user 0 0
if you save fstab file now a icon called C:drive will appear on the desk top

step 2
Make folders in /mnt folder such as

step 3
To put more Icons from other partitions on desktop, if you have extended
partitions you will have to get the D: drive hda# off the partition table
as given in step 4, it might be for example hda5

repeat step 1 and step 2 changing C:drive to D:drive or what ever.

step 4
To get partition table log on as root and type in
fdisk -l /dev/hda
