Lacie USB 160Gb

i got a Lacie 160Gb USB HD, which i formated into a single NTFS partition using windows. How should i setup /etc/fstab in my linux box (MDK 10.0) for read and write access for my users to this drive?

Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

/dev/sda1 /mnt/usb_harddrive ntfs defaults 0222 0 0

please remember that ntfs isn't fully supported in linux (yet). I would recommend fat32 for best results.
