Which module/process is needed to see my XP drv?

I use the following cli cmd in an attempt to mount my winXP drv (hda)...

mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows

...nothing appears in the dir /mnt/windows...

I know there is a module that allows for "reading" of ntfs I just dont remember
the name....please advise and thanks in advance.
