mount -t ntfs /dev/hdXX /mnt/my_windows_xp
if it complain about unsupported FS, recompile your kernel.

NO NEED to recompile the kernel.

Slackware 9.0 comes prepatched. Just mount the partition.

Assuming you haven't compiled your own kernel, you can simply use the mount command as follows:

su (to root)
mount -rt ntfs -o uid=YourUserName /dev/hda? /Mount_Point

Setting the -o uid= to your username will allow your user account read-only access to the partition once its filesystem has been mounted. Replace hda? with the number of the partition you want to mount (eg. hda1). And lastly, replace /Mount_Point with the name of a folder you want to mount the FS to (eg. /mnt/hd, /c-drive). This folder can be put anywhere on your Linux filesystem.

Good luck.

>>"When I do ls in /mnt/ it appears cdrom/ floppy/ hd/. Is that right?"

That's fine. Those are the default three folders, where CD-ROMs and floppies are mounted respectively. It's safe to use hd/ to mount disk partitions, since I've never really seen that folder used elsewhere.

Of course, if you so desire, nothing stops you from creating your own folder. It's not required, but it makes finding things a bit easier. For instance, I mount my NTFS partition to a folder I made called /mnt/ntfs.
