Unable to mount NTFS partition as user


EDIT:

I must clarify I am able to mount but not access NTFS partitions as user.

Must be permissions related by I am unable to access the mount point after mounting the partition.

Relevant FSTAB entries
Code:
/dev/hda1       /mnt/c          ntfs    ro,user,noauto  0       0
/dev/hda5       /mnt/d          vfat    user,noauto     0       0
/dev/hda6       /mnt/e          ntfs    ro,user,noauto  0       0

You've forgotten to pass a umask=0 mount option.

try

Code:
/dev/hda1       /mnt/c          ntfs    ro,user,noauto,umask=0  0       0

Thank you. I'll try it out tomorrow. I'm at home now and I don't have an NTFS partition here
