Can anyone give me the commands to mount those windows partitions? and those windows partitions must be mounted for every boot. I searched those partitions in /dev folder but i couldnt understand which are the windows partitions

You can see your partitions with

fdisk -l

Write down your Windows partitions. Let's say the partitions are /dev/hda2 and /dev/hda3. To automatically mount at boot time, edit your fstab file:

su
[enter password]

nano /etc/fstab

Add the following lines to it. Here we used /mnt/win1 and /mnt/win2 as the mount points, but you can choose anything. Just make sure it's in /mnt:

/dev/hda2 /mnt/win1 vfat defaults 0 0
/dev/hda3 /mnt/win2 vfat defaults 0 0

And create your mount points that you added:

mkdir /mnt/win1 /mnt/win2

Exit out, reboot, and you should find your Windows partitions in /mnt.
