I duel boot w/win98

After reading this I set it up, and it worked :-) Thanks very much!

/dev/hdb1 /mnt/hd/ vfat auto,users,umask=0 0 0

I opened /mnt and dragged the hd folder to the desktop and told it to
link to it.  Renamed the folder win98-hd on the desktop, I can read and
write to it. I'm using KDE.  Thanks for the info/help!
