for a normal ntfs readonly windows partition:
Code:
/dev/sdax       /media/sdax    ntfs silent,umask=0222,locale=en_US.UTF-8  0  0
OR
if ur using ntfs-3g read/write driver
Code:
/dev/sdax       /media/sdax    ntfs-3g  silent,umask=0,locale=en_US.UTF-8  0  0
and for fat32 filesystems with only root been able to have write permission
Code:
/dev/sdax       /media/sdax     vfat     defaults   0     0
where x is the partn number.while http://ubuntuguide.org can help u in this

What are the permissions on /media/windows? Maybe you have to reset the permissions on that directory to something fairly open to everyone before you try to look at it with nautilus.
