Question Can someone help me mount my NTFS partition?


In my fstab, I have the following line:
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs defaults 0 0, umask=2 2 2

And each time it gives ma a warning about bad format on line 5 (this line) of fstab. Can somone point me in the right direction?

yes, don't even think about mounting an ntfs volume under linux, the NTFS code s experimental and the write support is _VERY_ dangerous.
