Two options

1) At the command line type 'mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/point'

2) If you'd like the partition mounted automatically when the machine is booted, add an entry to /etc/fstab along the lines of:

/dev/hda1 /mnt/point ntfs defaults 0 0

Do yourself a huge favor and make sure you don't enable write support.. at least not if you want to run WinNT again without jumping through a bunch of hoops to fix the file system.....
