> You cannot (as far as I know) mount xp (ntfs) partitions.

It is possible to mount them, but only readonly. Write access support is  
disabled in the kernel because it is certain to cause corruption if used.

So, something like:
  mont -t ntfs -o ro /dev/hda1 /mnt/win
should work...
There's a project called ntfs TNG (The Next generation) that
is creating a new driver for ntfs but it is still (I think)
only in 2.5 (maybe there is a backport to 2.4, don't know for
