Accessing NTFS-partition from Slakcware

How do I change the fstab-file so that all users (not only root) can access it? Can you also make it a read-only device (I've heard that rw can destroy the hard disk)?

When I say "all users" I only mean local ones, not over the network.

You can change the group permissions so users can access. First you'll have to remount it so it's rw, so edit your /etc/fstab and change ro to rw and remount it. When you remount it add users to your group and change the permissions to 660.
