you would need to mount that partition somewhere in linux directory structure...Linux can read NTFS well but the write support is still experimental. So try not to write to ntfs partition.

you can try this command

mount -t ntfs -o ro /dev/hdXY /mnt/windows

replace X with your device and Y with partition number. you'll also have to create windows directory in /mnt if its not already there.

$ man mount
for more info...also google around.
