Hello:
Welcome to the forums.

Please un-lock you Cap Lock

The naming convention for drive partitions under Linux is not the same as Windows.
To see what the partitions are referred to, open a terminal an log in as root and type

fdisk -l

To become root please see :What is root? How do I "become root?

If your other partitions are ntfs filesystems and you wish to mount these, then please see the instructions located here :
Mount NTFS Partitions

I have another question regarding mounting other filesystems. I know how to automount them with /etc/fstab. Now I want to know how can I add these partitions to Places ,Computer, so they will be visible as a disk. The same way as it is with the CD-rom or USB-flash disks.

Here is an example from my computer:
$ /sbin/fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 200.0 GB, 200049647616 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 24321 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 10199 81922048 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda2 10200 10212 104422+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda3 10213 24321 113330542+ 8e Linux LVM

In order to mount ntfs filesystem (I use ntfs-3g, yum install ntfs-3g).
First you should create dir where u want your driver to be mounted (usually in /mnt or /media).
$ mkdir something

and than use command

$ ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/something

That's it. Also check http://www.fedorafaq.org/.
