mount ntfs partition is debian, kde 3.5

I have an ntfs partition on hda1 that I'd like to mount at boot time, and allow users to read from.
My ftab is
/dev/hda1 /media/hda1 ntfs user,noauto,uid=me,gid=me,umask=022 0 0

I tried to mount it with
mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /media/hda1

mount /media/hda1mount /media/hda1mount
as normal user gives me
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda1,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

I can see my files in konqueror as root, but I get an error when I try to do so from my normal account.
How do I allow users to read from the ntfs partition?

Ummm... maybe you should check the permissions of /media/hda1 (when the partition is not mounted). For mounting it on startup, you should probably get rid of "noauto" in that line in fstab

Change above entry in /etc/fstab to:

/dev/hda1 /media/hda1 ntfs defaults,user,umask=022 0 0

now mount using ordinary user as
$ mount /dev/hda1
