Yes, thank you Bill.  Here's the Ken Bloom creation:

/dev/hda1            /mnt/windows         vfat       
defaults,uid=1000,fmask=177,dmask=077

Remember, I don't know what any of this means after the "vfat" entry.

BTW, I recently read on the Mozilla web site that Mandrake automatically 
configures a dual boot system to mount the Windows partition read-write.  
That's nice for the newbies, and the bewbies like me who never learn.  But 
this is a SuSE system.
