To see what partitions have been autodetected by DSL, open an Xterminal and type:
To do the actual mounting, you should be able to just type something like:
Or, as root, you can manually specify the whole process:
mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1
Keep in mind that your NTFS partition might not be in the expected location. This is especially true for Dells and other PC manufacturers that create a small hidden FAT partition at the beginning of the hard drive that contain the Dell diagnostic utilities. So in this case, the NTFS partition would actually be at /dev/hda2
If DSL does not autodetect your drives on a newer computer, it may be due to limited support for SATA disk controllers. Try and go into your BIOS and set your SATA controller for "legacy mode" or "PATA mode" or "OS install mode" and then try booting DSL again.
Or you could download user tronik's unofficial DSL remaster that included linux kernel version 2.4.27 and full SATA support.
Hopefully, some of this information will be helpful.
