What does your /etc/fstab indicate if any for this mounted partition?

Have you tried mounting with the user option?

Code:
/dev/hdb1 /win-d ntfs user,ro 0 0

Talking

chmod is a good tool to do these things, but it has its bad sides.

I know but if I remember the last time it worked ok. This is now my /etc/fstab:

/dev/hda3 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda4 / ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb1 /win-d ntfs defaults,ro,user 0 0
/dev/hdb2 /lin-d auto defaults 0 0

Any ideas?

Here is the solution:

/dev/hda3 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda4 / ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb1 /win-d ntfs defaults,ro,user,umask=000
0 0
/dev/hdb2 /lin-d auto defaults 0 0
