First, make subdirectories in /mnt to mount the drives in. For
example :

# mkdir /mnt/fat32
# mkdir /mnt/cdrom

then run
# mount -t vfat /dev/hda3 /mnt/fat32
# mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom

I don't know about zip-drive, but it shouldn't be awfully different.

To automate the mounting at the boottime, add the following in your

/dev/hda3 /mnt/fat32 vfat defaults 0 2
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom iso9660 ro,user,noauto,unhide

This would mount your fat32 partition every time you boot into linux,
and also allow you to mount your cdrom with a simple command
# mount /mnt/cdrom
and also you won't have to become root to mount your cdrom.
