I'm not quite sure if I understand your question, so let me see if I can clarify.

Are you trying to read/write to your NTFS disk or are you trying to remove these partitions from being seen under your file browser?

You need to have gconf-editor installed, use 'whereis gconf-editor' to see if you got it else install it using 'apt-get install gconf-editor'.

1) Once installed run it either by Applications(main menu)->System Tools->Configuration Editor or simply 'gconf-editor' in terminal.
2) Then navigate to apps->nautilus->desktop and uncheck 'volumes_visible' in the right pane.

This will hide the mounted volumes on your desktop.

A point : Gconf-editor is a lot more powerful, might be useful to have a look.
