Is This The Mandriva Way? Need a shortcut to mount windows drives

You will have to explain more precisely what you are doing (are you trying to open internal drives ?)
However, the usual way for Mandriva is : you click on the drive and it opens it.
For instance when you perform a fresh install of Mandriva on a machine having Microsoft Windows already installed, you see the Windows drives and you click on them.
Same thing with the USB pendrives, if automount is installed, they are automatically mounted and you simply double-click.
You cand boot on the MandrivaOne LiveCD, which allows you running Mandriva without installing it, and check all these features on a this ready-to-use system.
Probably your problem is due to a failed or a partial install.
Also, have a look somewhere else : probably the mountpoints are already created for you and you just have to use them, they are probably in the /mnt folder.
Hope this helped.

¨An error occurred while accessing ´Local Disk´, the system responded org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume.PermissionDenied. Device /dev/sda5 is listed in /etc/fstab. Refusing to mount.¨
Then I am doing the above steps that I mentioned in above post (lengthy procedure) to open the drive.
