That's odd - I actually have it working under Windows 95. I used
the Win32 port of egcs-1.0.2 for the compile.

Create the directory /mnt/dos. As root, issue the following command.
mount -t msdos /dev/hda1 /mnt/dos
If it is a Windows95 partition, try "mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/dos"
If you want to mount your dos partition automatically during boot,
simply add it to /etc/fstab
