Unhappy Unable to mount NTFS volumes in Mandriva 2009 Power Pack_(64-bit)


I am new to Linux and I am using Mandriva 2009 Power Pack(64-bit). I am not being able to mount NTFS volumes. It shows following error when I try to mount.


"An error occured while accessing 'volume(ntfs)', the system responded:
org.freedesktop.HAL.Device.Volume.PermissionDenied: Device /dev/sda8 is listed in /etc/fstab. Refusing to mount."

It seems you dont have the mount/unmount permissions on your user account.

So you are trying to mount your "/dev/sda8" partition, you should try that with root.
Open a terminal and type:

Code:
su -c "mount /dev/sda8 /mnt/sda8"
But you have to first create the /mnt/sda8 directory.

Thank you for your suggestion.
I had the root permissions. I got it mounted using "force"!

Problem is solved!
Once I force-ably mounted the volumes, from the next reboot they are getting mounted automatically.
