You probably don't want to use mtools with a DOS hard drive, although
it will work. Instead, you probably want to mount it as a filesystem,
using a command like `mount /dev/hda1 /mnt'. Dissected:
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt
^ ^^ ^ Mount point. This can be any directory.

You can put the details in your /etc/fstab. See the fstab man page
