Question mounting NTFS drive


Hello,

I have a XP system which is infected with a virus. To eliminate the virus I need to delete some files but because the virus is running I'm not able to delete it while the OS is running. (I even tried Safe Mode) I connected the infected Hard Drive to my Open SuSE 11 machine and I mounted the HD, I could access it however when I tried to delete the virus it gave a no write-delete permission message. How can I mount a NTFS drive to have full read, write and execute permissions?
Thanks!!!
