NTFS external won't mount


I have installed the ntfs-linux thing, and I keep trying to mount a very large NTFS drive onto my kubuntu machine. I don't want to lose whats on there, it is some very important stuff. When I try to mount it I get:
An error occurred while enabling /Pelican.
The system reported: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
I can't figure it out.

Lets see if it is seen correctly.
Use the command as root and post output.
fdisk -l

Where is this ntfs-linux thing you got?
How was it installed?
What instructions did you follow?
What mount command are you using?
