    The problem is that you haven't selected ntfs support in the kernel, if you complised you own kernel, go back and in the FileSystems part select to have the ntfs support built in or as a module. If you have an rpm based distro, mandriva and suse already come with ntfs support, but Fedora core doesn't, so you might want to check out and download and install it (use the instructions on the site, and follow them carefully).

    Once you have the ntfs support you should be able to mount as you are currently trying to do:
    mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/win_c
    I hope this has helped.
