Click on Start->Execute (don't know how this is exactly called on English windoze) or open a command window (cmd.exe). There, type: chkdsk /f . Tell windoze you want it to check the disk at reboot. Reboot into windoze, and let chkdsk repair the disk. Then reboot into linux and see what happens.

You were right. I did this. I ended up having to use fsutil to force
the partition to be dirty to get windoze to check it. It did. There
were no errors. However, when I rebooted to Linux I still have the same
problem. I can mount the partition, but I can only cd to it as root.
I tried googling the error msg above but not much. Maybe I need to
contact the developers who have written this ntfs support for linux.
How would I go about finding them?
