[GRLUG] Mount a windoz XP drive

Scenario:  I have an IDE drive from
a machine running windoz XP that I'd
like to mount on Kubuntu.

The drive might be bad, but assuming
it's not, what would be an appropriate
mount command?

I've tried mount -t ntfs /dev/sdf  /X  and
mount -t ntfs /dev/sdf /X -o ro - the latter
because one source claim you can only
read from a windoz XP drive.

Neither works.  Messages include
"doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS."
