You will need to install ntfs support... see the above link.
The line you added appears to be fine, you might want to use the 'umask' option to let regular users use the drive. Also make sure that the /mnt/windows directory exists.

fstab line that lets regular users access:
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs umask=0,defaults 0 0

"mount: can't find dev/hda1 in etc/fstab or etc/mstab"

should be /dev/hda1, not dev/hda1 (note the preceding 'slash')
