Welcome to LQ. Essentially, all you need to do to access your NTFS partition is to mount it to a directory under Linux. Check the man pages for more info about the mount command, but you basically just need to:
mount /dev/hdxy /some/mountpoint
where x is the drive identifier and y is the partition number for NTFS, and /some/mountpoint is the directory to which you want to attach the NTFS data. Post back if you have questions or if any of this is unclear -- J.W.
