bad. You still need a directory to mount it. Don't change many things at 
once. Do one change, try it out, then another ...

A 'mount /dev/hda2' will very likely complain about the missing 
mountpoint. Just 'makedir /mnt/win' and you should be good to go.  
Otherwise please post *the exact error message*.

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
