yes you can mount it so that on boot up it will automount. All you need to do is create a mount point then in fstab add the entry
Code:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/WinHdd ntfs defaults 0 0
some modifications will need to be made. Like where your win partition is and where you want to mount it. Also you may have to change the mount options. I think you may be able to use cifs instead of ntfs also.
