The newest distributions will mount NTFS formatted windows partitions without much fuss.
mount -t ntfs /partition/to/mount /mount/point
If this does not work then you may need ntfs-3g tool to do the same. Install it with your package manager and then mount the ntfs partition as
mount -t ntfs-3g /partition/to/mount /mount/point
And you do not need to be expert to mount a partition. Just a super user.
