It depends on the Win2k FileSystem. If it's FAT (any flavour) or plain old
NTFS there's no problem, if you're using encrypted or compressed NTFS you'll
need to move the mp3s to another FS first. NTFS support is read-only but that
won't be a problem if all you want to do is read/transfer the mp3s.
Anyway, the tool you need is mount. Check man mount for details. All
linuxconf does btw is run mount on your behalf - I don't use it though so I
can't tell what's gone wrong with it. You need something along the lines of:
mount -t ntfs /dev/hd?? /mnt/mp3s
If you want to have this drive automatically mounted each time you boot stick
an entry in /etc/fstab with the auto option. Read man fstab, the "options"
column corresponds to the arguments in mount.
