    Seems to me the error is quite clear on why there is a problem.

    Create the mount point.

    create a folder /mnt/hda1 (create the mountpoint, that means) before mounting there...

    Default I'm going to be that guy.

    Just pointing this out: If you're having problems with mounting a device because you didn't make a folder, perhaps Backtrack is not the distro for you at this time. Now, maybe you just posted without really thinking, but this is probably even a larger violation of the "target market" mentality. Try to figure it out on your own. I'm actually dumbfounded that anyone helped you with this issue as "noobish" as it is, especially balding_parrot. At least his humor was there.

    This should do it for you:

    mkdir /mnt/sda1
    mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1
    Ask questions on the open forums, that way everybody benefits from the solution, and everybody can be corrected when they make mistakes. Don't send me private messages asking questions that should be asked on the open forums, I won't respond. I decline all "Friend Requests".
