Mount Imaged NTFS Drive

I backed up my Windows XP Pro C: drive to replace it with Linux Debian. I am only booting Linux and FreeBSD now. But a question first. I used the command:

dd if=/dev/hda1 of=/mnt/BackupDrive/WinC.iso

How can I access the data that was on the C drive now? I know I could just copy it back over to the drive, but I would rather be able to just mount it or something.

Thanks for all the help.

If you have NTFS support, this should work

mount -t ntfs -o loop windows.iso /mnt/dir
