Basic command is

mount /dev/hdx1 /media/windows/ -t ntfs

mount -t ntfs /dev/hda  /media/windows

here you are trying to mount /dev/hda ( your external hardrive)

to

/media/windows directory

but your kernel will have to ntfs support, other wise you will have to install linux-ntfs drive , have a look this one
