what is the command you are using to mount it? we have no idea whether you're even doing it right in the first place.

In root what does cfdisk say?
hda2 Boot Primary NTFS
Becareful and toggle to Quit, BTW.
Is it dual boot or VM ware?

Usually u can just left click on the desktop and it's auto mount.
maybe /media/hda1/ or /mnt/hda1/ then l to see any WINDOWS files.
