problem mounting sfs filesystems in suse9.0
Hi there, I've just installed Suse 9.0 (9.1 is on order). I'm dual booting at the moment between Suse and XP, everything has gone swimmingly apart from one issue. I can't seem to mount my other windows drives (one 80gig ide and the other is a 320gig scsi raid). When I look in the partitioning section in Yast, I can see the drives, but its telling me that the partitions are sfs and not ntfs(they were formatted in xp as ntfs), when I try to mount them (tried using mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /dir and mount -t sfs /dev/sda1) I keep getting bad superblock (ntfs) and file system not supported (sfs). Is there any way I can mount these drives without having to re-partition/format them and hence destroying all the data on them?
I'm a bit of a newbie to Linux, so my apologies if this question has been asked a thousand times over, I couldn't see anything like when I searched.
