Try the following commands as root:

mkdir /mnt/hda1
mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1
cd /mnt/hda1
ls -la

I've read that mounting NTFS partitions under linux is an "at your own risk" sort of thing, but I've done it without any adverse effects.

I have xp prof I set privacy on some folders
When i had to redo my hard drive I was able to copy the files but now I can not access them through windows (do not have permission)

Hoping that I can get to the files with linux

Thanks for help

If by "privacy" you mean "encryption", you may be screwed. This also would have been a nice piece of information to include in your original post.
