Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

|_ what he said, basically. What distro are you using? Some come with ntfs support already in the default kernel, with others you have to compile it in.
Basic writing to ntfs from *Nix is supported in 2.4.21, but still with a "use at own risk" caveat. There used to be a program to run after you'd written to the disk which checked / made sure you hadn't screwed it up, but I can't remember the name.
I assume (probably as root):
#mount /dev/hd?? /mnt/windows1
(where ?? is your ntfs disk / partition), ie hda1 etc.
I can sucessfully mount my drive when using su and logging in as root at a prompt but once its mounted I cant view the files because it says Im not allowed to and they can only be viewed if I log in to linux fully as root at the login screen, and also when I try to add the command line to fstab it gives me errors and doesnt mount it at bootup.
