    Only the root user can mount drives (unless the drive is listed in the fstab file and has the "user" flag).

    So switch to root before mounting.

    When you're at a terminal, logged in as a normal user, type the following:

    Code:
    sudo -s
    This will give you access as the root user. From there, just do whatever you want to do:

    Code:
    cd /mnt
    mkdir win
    mount /dev/sda1 win
    cd win
    ls
