Well, it's not the wrong fs type.
From 'man mount'
-r Mount the file system read-only. A synonym is -o
The argument following the -t is used to indicate
the file system type. The file system types which
are currently supported are listed in
linux/fs/filesystems.c: adfs, affs, autofs, coda,
coherent, devpts, efs, ext, ext2, hfs, hpfs,
iso9660, minix, msdos, ncpfs, nfs, ntfs, proc,
qnx4, romfs, smbfs, sysv, udf, ufs, umsdos, vfat,
xenix, xiafs. Note that coherent, sysv and xenix
So it's not a bad option.
Dunno if there's a bad superblock on /dev/hda1, but if windows boots OK,
that's probly not the problem either.
That leaves too many mounted filesystems.
Is something already mounted on /mnt/windows?
