windows isn't going to show the hdd if it isn't fat / ntfs. and perhaps dreamlinux is using a format not known to pclinuxos too.

This is a very good point...you will need to dertermine what type of file systems you are trying to access. The default with most linux distros I believe is ext3. There is a windows driver you can install that will allow it to read ext3 partitions. Just google "Ext2 Installable File System For Windows"
