There appear to be two problems, one is easy to fix, the other may not be so
easy:

1) When you use the mount command you left out the full path to your hda2
device. Your command should actually read:

mount -t ntfs /dev/hda2 /mnt/DOS_hda2

2) It looks like your kernel doesn't know how to deal with the ntfs file
system. It's a shame you weren't at last night's meeting because Mark
Krentel explained how to use kernel modules, which is what you'll likely
need here. Try running:

modinfo ntfs

If get an error message saying "modinfo: ntfs: no module by that name found",
you will have to re-compile your kernel to include ntfs support either as part
of the kernel or as a module. If you get any other response, you should be
able to run:

modprobe ntfs

This will enable your kernel to recognize the ntfs file system, after which
you can run your mount command.
