Can't access mounted NTFS drive

My system is a dual booted Windows XP and Redhat Fedora Core 1 system, each installed on separate hard drives. The WinXP drive was (stupidly) recently reformatted into NTFS, but I downloaded and correctly installed NTFS drivers, and can currently mount the NTFS drive. However, I can't access the drive at all unless I'm logged in as root. I have the following line entered into /etc/fstab:

/dev/hda1               /mnt/WindowsXP          ntfs    defaults        0 0
I would really like to be able to read from this drive using any account. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
