Mounting NTFS problem


Hi,
I installed the ntfs kernel but when i issue those following commands: mount -t ntfs /dev/hda2 /mnt/winxp
i get:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda2,
or too many mounted file systems
Can someone guide through doing it right?

Thank you

What distro are you using? What is the output of 'cat /proc/filesystems'? Make sure /mnt/winxp exists, and if it doesn't mkdir it. And don't forget to read the man pages of mount.

to find what distro are u using, one way is in boot of O.S. a welcome message should appear and u can see what distro u're using. another way, is, in shell, do: cat /proc/version and u'll be able to see (somewhere in the output) your distro. maybe, u dont have the NTFS support module, or your distro dont support it !!

try doing "insmod ntfs" or "modprobe ntfs" before trying to mount. The kernel was probably not compiled for built-in NTFS support and you may need to load the module first.
