    Did you mean an NTFS partition? Are you trying to mount a Windows partition?
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    For write access on NTFS you need the ntfs-3g driver.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Assuming that you have the NTFS driver support built into the kernel, you still need to install the ntfsprogs package. That provides the tools you need to mount, check, and otherwise use NTFS file systems. That said, you should NEVER use an NTFS file system for your standard Linux system components such as /, /boot, /usr, /var, etc.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    As stated above: install ntfsprogs and ntfs-3g. Then you should be able to mount your partition. If you have only read access make sure mount.ntfs-3g is used instead of the normal mount.ntfs.
