Can you explain to me what you mean by "the mount point must exsist"? Do you mean I have to create that directory first? Or is it something more?...

    Exactly.

    Suppose you want to mount /dev/hda1 to /mnt/windows.

    You first create the directory :
    Code:
    mkdir -p /mnt/windows
    Then you mount the volume :
    Code:
    mount -t ntfs -o umask=0222,user /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows

    Man, I cannot thank you enough! This is why I am always amazed by Linux, difficult problem, easy solution. It works perfectly.
