Sure. do "man mount" for more details of how to mount non-linux filesystems.

In Mandrake the dos directory is named something like DOS_hda1. The number (1) in the end changes with the partition so it could be 2 or 3 or 4. hda means the first disk, if you have one more disk it would be hdc. So the command will be modified like DOS_hdc2
Bye,
