| I have a copy of an XFree86Config file from a ThinkPad 380XD on a FAT
| partition, and would like to copy it to the /etc partition to replace
| the XFreeConfig file generated when I installed COL.  How do I get the
| file from the FAT partition to the /etc directory?

If you had Windows installed first, it's probably the /dev/hda1
partition, so you could do this:

mkdir -p /mnt/c
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/c

Then your Windows partition will appear under /mnt/c.

If it's not /dev/hda1, you can probably figure out which one it is by
running "fdisk -l /dev/hda" as root.
