Check that your kernel has a NTFS server. You may need
to modprobe ntfs before mounting. You can look at the
/proc/filesystems file (cat /proc/filesystems).
Also, check that the mount point (/mnt/windows) exists.

Re: Mounting NTFS, was: Re: GRUB issue
As I mentioned in my post, cat /proc/filesystems lists ntfs.
Also, /mnt/windows exists. Please do let me know as to what I am to do
