cant mount ntfs on 2.4.24


i'm using debian sarge with kernel 2.4.24 which i thought was supposed to include read-only ntfs support but when i try:

mount -t ntfs -o ro /dev/hda1 /winxp

it says:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda1,
or too many mounted file systems
(could this be the IDE device where you in fact use
ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?)

am i mistaken that this should work?

hmm, well than perhaps you aren't pointing at the correct partition? look at
fidsk -l and see which are the non linux partitions, or perhaps you don't need the -o ro as ntfs is mounted read only by default....
