can't see ntfs partition


I'm trying to see ntfs partition as a normal user by mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows
but only root user can see it, for other users it's permission denied.
how can I give a user permission to see /mnt/windows?
thank you..

put it in /etc/fstab with the option "user", check the mount manpage for more info.
