    when I try to mount my main drive i get bad mount. linux is installed on my 30 gig drive, i want to mount my windows drive to grab some files off of it. when i go to mount i set it up like this

    /dev/hda /win_c msdos defaults

    /bin/mount -a

    I believe you can mount NTFS as read only in Linux, but your kernel has to be compiled for that option. Also, unless your partition is defined in your /etc/fstab, you should also have to specify the vfstype with the -t option in mount.

    example:
    mount -r -t ntfs /dev/hdaX /mnt/mountpoint

    man mount will explain.
