NTFS problem


Alright. Ive looked at basically all the help posts and such, and still no luck with viewing my NTFS hdd. I'm running Fedora core 3, and i have the newest NTFS driver from that sourceforge site. I went through all those instructions, and i get to the last step and have some issues. Its the messege at the way bottom that says "mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda5," Heres what it shows:

/sbin/fdisk: invalid option -- 1

Usage: fdisk [-b SSZ] [-u] DISK Change partition table
fdisk -l [-b SSZ] [-u] DISK List partition table(s)
fdisk -s PARTITION Give partition size(s) in blocks
fdisk -v Give fdisk version
Here DISK is something like /dev/hdb or /dev/sda
and PARTITION is something like /dev/hda7
-u: give Start and End in sector (instead of cylinder) units
-b 2048: (for certain MO disks) use 2048-byte sectors
[root@localhost mcang]# /sbin/fdisk -l

Disk /dev/hda: 200.0 GB, 200049647616 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 24321 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

/dev/hda5 3825 24320 164634088+ 7 HPFS/NTFS

Disk /dev/hdb: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes

[root@localhost mcang]# mkdir /mnt/windows
[root@localhost mcang]# mount /dev/hda5 /mnt/windows -t ntfs -r -o unmask=0222
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda5,
or too many mounted file systems
[root@localhost mcang]# mount /dev/hda2 /mnt/windows -t ntfs -r -o unmask=0222
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda2,
or too many mounted file systems
(aren't you trying to mount an extended partition,
instead of some logical partition inside?)
[root@localhost mcang]# mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows -t ntfs -r -o unmask=0222
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda1,
or too many mounted file systems

You can not mount hda2. It is an extended partition i.e. a container for logical partitions (ID >=5).

It looks like the error is caused by a bad option. It should be umask not unmask

mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows -t ntfs -o umask=0222
