It doesn't matter if it's logical, as long as you can find out the partition name. Easiest way, try the following trial and error:

mount /dev/hdaX	/mnt/mountpoint

replace X with 1,2,3,4, etc until you find all your partition. It won't do any harm. Don't forget to umount first if it sucessfully mount. If hdaX is not a valid partition, you just get error message from mount (Of course, adjust the device name accordingly, if this is a primary slave, then you need /dev/hdb instead, etc).

Another way is using fdisk:
fdisk /dev/hda

and then type 'p' to show you all your partition table so that you know what partition number contains what. (NOTE : Be Carefull using fdisk, if you type the wrong thing you may end up reformating your hard drive, but other then that, it's save).
