I have an AMD 64 with windows xp, windows xp 64bit ,Mandrake 64 and Ubuntu. I am not able to mount windows partitions.

Partitions are as follow:

Disk /dev/hda: 82.3 GB, 82348277760 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 10011 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Do you have ntfs support included in your kernel? The last time I checked, it was still experimental for writing and hence the default (for FC) was to not allow it.

What happens when you type
mount /dev/hda1 /media/windows

(BTW, why are all three mount points the same? Shouldn't they be something like /media/win1, /media/win2, /media/win3 ?

When I type:

sudo mount /dev/hda1 /media/windows

mount: /dev/hda1 already mounted or /media/windows busy
mount: according to mtab, /dev/hda3 is already mounted on /media/windows
