Knoppix error with xp


I begin to use Knoppix yesterday and i writted this command :

mount -o remount,rw /mnt/sda1

result -> now i cant get to into xp

(sda1 is the partition NTFS of xp)

Somebody can say me how to solve this problem?

Note: Now when i try (from Knoppix) enter in that partition i get the next error:

"Could not device.
The reported error was:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock
on dev/sda1,

or too many mounted file system"

Note 2: fstab file

/proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/sys /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
/dev/pts /dev/pts devpts mode=0622 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/auto/floppy auto user,noauto,exec,umask=000 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/auto/cdrom auto user,noauto,exec,ro 0 0
/dev/cdrom1 /mnt/auto/cdrom1 auto users,noauto,exec,ro 0 0
/dev/cdrom2 /mnt/auto/cdrom2 auto users,noauto,exec,ro 0 0

# Added by KNOPPIX
/dev/sda5 /mnt/sda5 ntfs noauto,users,exec,ro,umask=000,uid=knoppix,gid=knoppix 0 0

There is a good reason Knoppix does not mount your NTFS in write mode. You should never write dirctly from Linux to NTFS. If you must write to your Windows Partition use
Captive( ) NTFS heres is some good info to start:
