access NTFS mounts without root


I am trying to access my NTFS mounts without being the root user. If I am not, it tels me I don't have access. How do I give myself (or another user) access to the share that root mounted?

Change the permissions to 777 of the folder that they are mounted to. Also, it might be a good idea to add it to /etc/fstab, if you haven't done that already.
