Linux doesnt see my 2 NTFS volumes

Ok, im sure this isa simple fix with the fstab edit...but i am not that good yet...

I installed yoper linux, which im totally loving. it is really fast...but, my 2 ntfs volumes arent showing up. During the install they were detected as HDa and HDG (i have 4 IDE Channels)

Heres my fstab:

# Begin /etc/fstab

# filesystem   mount-point fs-type    options     dump    fsck-order

/dev/fd0        /floppy         auto    rw,exec,noauto,users     0       0
#/dev/cdrom      /mnt/cdrom/     auto    ro,noauto,users,exec     0       0
/dev/cdrom  /mnt/cdrom  supermount fs=iso9660,dev=/dev/cdrom,--,ro,iocharset=iso8859-1 0 0
none            /dev/pts        devpts  gid=4,mode=620          0       0
none         /proc       proc    defaults            0   0
/dev/hdb1      /       reiserfs    notail,noatime        1       1
/dev/hdb3      swap    swap    defaults        0       0
/dev/hdb2  /home reiserfs    notail,noatime        1       1
/dev/scd0  /mnt/cdwriter  supermount fs=iso9660,dev=/dev/scd0,--,ro,iocharset=iso8859-1 0 0
thanks in advance guys.

mkdir /some/place
mkdir /some/other-place

then try something like this in /etc/fstab

/dev/hda1 /some/place ntfs umask=0 0 0
/dev/hdg1 /some/other-place ntfs umask=0 0 0

Obviously, change /some/place to something more rational like /mnt/windows or whatever
