You need to install the ntfs-3g package.

If the drive is internal, why not place it in /etc/fstab and have it permanently mounted somewhere?

Then you just need to have ntfs-3g installed and nothing more.

Are you looking for the debian package disk-manager?

Disk-Manager is a simple filesystem configurator that allows you to:
* Automatically detect new partitions at startup.
* Fully manage configuration of filesystem.
* Enable/disable write support for NTFS (needs ntfs-3g installed).
