    You have to create a mount point so if windows was sda1 for example...

    mkdir /mnt/sda1
    mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1

    Should work after that. Just do it for each of your partitions.

    it should work what pureh@te said

    1st off, type mount & see what drives are mounted
    IS /SDA1 YOUR HARDDRIVE..??
    then if any..... umount them & then as per pureh@te

    mkdir /mnt/sda1 (or /mnt/hda1 etc...)
    mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 (mount /dev/hda1)
    This should work trust us

    It looks like, from your shell output, that your hard drive is already mounted. Reboot and open a shell. "mount" with no arguments will show the devices already mounted.

    "ls /mnt/sda1" will show you your hard drive contents.

    Probably, when using konq, you are telling it to mount your hard drive rather than "open" it. Try "mc" from a shell. If it can access your hard drive, it's a gui problem or operator error.

    All your partitions should be mounted when you boot, default, unless you use the nohd cheatcode.

    Good Luck
