First of all, I don't know what you're mapping to. Where exactly is your windows partition. On the primary IDE 0 partition1, or a separate hard drive. What chain is it connected to? You can't mount the drive if you have no idea where it is connected.

The drive i am trying to read is connected to the "Primary IDE" and set to "master"
when i entered mount /mnt/windows/C this is what i got:

mount: can't find /mnt/windows/C in /etc/fstab or etc/mtab

and my fstab looks like this :

/dev/hdb2 / reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 1
/dev/hdb1 swap swap pri=42 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
/dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder subfs fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0
/dev/dvdrecorder /media/dvdrecorder subfs fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0
/dev/hda /mnt/windows/C/ ntfs noatime,user 0 0

change /dev/hda to /dev/hda1. Looks like a simple typo.
