I only have Breezy installed. Here is the output:

matt@kalliope:~$ cat /proc/partitions
major minor #blocks name

   8 0 39070080 sda
   8 1 14651248 sda1
   8 2 4142880 sda2

Here is my partition table:

matt@kalliope:~$ sudo fdisk -l /dev/sda

Disk /dev/sda: 40.0 GB, 40007761920 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 4864 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 1824 14651248+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda2 * 4348 4864 4142880 2 XENIX root
Partition 2 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/sda3 1825 4240 19406520 83 Linux
/dev/sda4 4241 4347 859477+ 5 Extended
/dev/sda5 4241 4347 859446 82 Linux swap / Solaris

Partition table entries are not in disk order

and here is what I get when I try to mount /dev/sda1:

matt@kalliope:~$ sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /mnt/test
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1,

Dunno if this helps, but it is certainly weird. Windows was working fine since
my massive dist-upgrade yesterday.
