Why?

Do you want to mount a Windows system in a Virtual Machine or mount a partition of Windows?

If you want to mount Windows in a Virtual Machine (VM now), use the Virtual Box application, is good, and it have a kind of shared folder to share the Linux/Windows files.
If you want to mount a a partition of Windows in linux, you have to try the ntfs-3g.

In most modern distributions of Linux and Unix (at least ones with graphical environments like KDE, Gnome or XFCE), you get to mount your partitions easily from the desktop. In some cases however, it isn't that easy. Note, that all of these commands have to be run in a terminal as root user. To open a terminal (sometimes called a console), either press ALT+F2 and type xterm (alternatives could be konsole or terminal) or press CRTL+ALT+F1 to...
