You need to mount hda5 to a directory first.

mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /your_chosen_directory_here

And make sure the Kernel has NTFS support.

Except change /dev/hda1 to /dev/hda5, and make sure you create the chosen directory before you try to mount /dev/hda5 to it.

Weclome to LQ!

If you want your Windoze partition mounted every time you boot
Slackware, you should edit your /etc/fstab file adding this (as root):
Code:
/dev/hda5     /WinXP     ntfs     users,umask=1000,ro,auto   1   0
You will also have to create the mount point /WinXP. Do this by opening
a Konsole, then issue "su -" and give the root password. Then issue
"mkdir /WinXP" and then exit from root to normal user.

Afterwards, you're Windoze XP partition will automatically mount
every time you boot into Slackware.

NB: This partition will be mounted read-only. Write support for NTFS
partitions from a Linux OS is still not stable enough, and I would not
recommend it for someone inexperienced with Linux.
