Sat your Windows partition is on /dev/hda1 and it is a FAT32 partition, the 
basic configuration for your /etc/fstab should be:
File: /etc/fstab

/dev/hda1   /mnt/c   vfat   defaults   0 0


    * /dev/hda1 is the partition
    * /mnt/c is the mountpoint where the partition will be available after 
    * vfat is the file system type
    * defaults is the option to be passed to mount
    * 0 0 is related to file system integrity test (no test with 0 0) 

so, as root, type mount /mnt/c after first creating it:

mkdir /mnt/c

Kind Regards,
