Hmm... it looks bizarre; I'm sure that we miss something stupid. I'm really curious about it...
Type "mount" and if it isn't a line concerning to windows (or, better, hbb1), try "mount -v /dev/hdb1" (or "mount -v /dev/hdb1 /mnt/WindowsXP -t ntfs").
If there is a line about hdb1, post it.
Post any result...

i'm not sure it will make a difference, but try using umask=000 instead of just umask=0

so it should look like this:

/dev/hdb1 /mnt/WindowsXP ntfs defaults,umask=000 0 0
