    man mount

Look also at /etc/fstab, if you're interested in creating a permanently
associated (and automatically mounted) win98 partition mount point on

GNU/Linux doesn't rely on (broken) file associations to the extent
Legacy MS Windows does.  You invoke a program on a file, in general.
E.g.:  vi foo.html
