ntfs worries and woes


I know this question has been asked before a hundred times. But, I've read over all the questions and answers and am still being stymied. I'm trying to mount (read only) the Windows partitions (NTFS) holding my pix and music files. I've installed NTFS support (kernel-ntfs-2.4.20-8.athlon.rpm), and added what I believe to be the correct lines in /etc/fstab (see last two lines, /dev/hdb1 and /dev/hdb2) below), but when attempting the "mount -a" command in terminal (as root), I receive the following response:

[root@pia154-169 etc]# mount -a
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdb1,
or too many mounted file systems

Will someone take a peek at this fstab file and enlighten me as to what I've done wrong, and what steps in doing this job I've omitted or got out of sequence or whatever (as I fumblebutt around)? Some of this stuff is simply not intuitive and I'm not too proud to beg!


ILABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb7 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
/dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/hdb1 /mnt/win ntfs users,owner,ro,umask-000 0 0
/dev/hdb3 /mnt/win1 ntfs users,owner,ro,umask-000 0 0

I've done my best to find the correct information about this little job before attempting it, but I've missed something. Your help, as always will be greatly appreciated.

Typo?
Code:
/dev/hdb1 /mnt/win ntfs users,owner,ro,umask=000 0 0
/dev/hdb3 /mnt/win1 ntfs users,owner,ro,umask=000 0 0

Right you are!

Yep, changing the - to = did the trick.
Thanks a mil. After pounding away in terminal all day, everything starts to look the same.
