mount_msdos /dev/ad0s4 /mnt
where ad0 is your disk and s4 is your win slice FAT32 formatted

or mount_ntfs is it is NTFS; mount_ntfs(8) says:

     There is limited writing ability.Limitations: file must be
nonresident     and must not contain any sparces (uninitialized areas);
compressed files     are also not supported.
