First modprobe the ntfs module: "sudo /sbin/modprobe ntfs". Then the easiest way would be to run the YaST2 partitioner program. Instead of partitioning your drive, select the partition and click on Edit. Then enter a mount point. You will want to make sure you select option that will give you permission to read from the drive. I'm not at my linux computer now, but there may a box that will allow you to do that under the properties. If not, you can add the options "fmask=111,dmask=000". This will allow anyone to read the drive. When you are finished, YaST will create your mount point and add an entry to /etc/fstab.
If you also want to write to the drive, then you need to install the ntfs-3g and fuse packages. You may need to modprobe the fuse kernel module after installing it: "sudo /sbin/modprobe fuse". Umount the windows partition, then edit your /etc/fstab file (as root) change the work ntfs to ntfs-3g. Next mount the windows partition: :"sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/<device> /<mountpoint> -o rw,fmask=111,dmask=000". Where <device> is the device of your windows partition, such as /dev/sda1 and <mountpoint> is the directory you want it mounted, such as /mnt/windows/.
Using the partitioner program, YaST may pick up other options you might want such as the the character encoding of the filenames.
Both mount and ntfs-3g have their own manpages.
If you installed SuSE with the windows drive removed, you may have a problem if reinstalling the first drive causes the drive mappings to change. You may need to edit the the boot= line in the grub boot items, changing (hd0,0) to (hd1,0). Just something to keep in mind.
