Not in linux right now but left bottom the icon looking like a house or similar if you right click it then it should show "storage" something and clicking this should show other devices like cd / hd / ntfs and right click or double click the actual drive / partition you want should have a mount option or mount it by default if this was then the same as during install.

Code: Select all

Usually as root in terminal you can:
cd /mnt
mkdir win
mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/win

or unmount /mnt/win
or unmount /dev/sda3
to exit partition / unmount it.

This above relies on /etc/fstab and should have the actual windows partitions in there and what to do with it same as with the dvd drive.

If this does not work then google for /etc/fstab or using the wiki top right / gentoo.org wiki / forums to get more info about this.
