Captive-ly mounted drives not available to normal users

I realize there is probably a very simple explanation to this question, but how I can I have access to NTFS drives mounted with Captive when I am not root? My listing in fstab looks like this:

/dev/hda1 /media/winxp captive-ntfs defaults,uid=1000

I was under the impression that the uid parameter would give ownership of the mount point to the normal user. How can I change this so I can access it normally?

Thank you in advance!

I don't know what you mean by access (do you only have read permissions or can't you see anything?) but if it's a permissions problem then try adding a umask=0 parameter. That works well with vfat partitions and may help here.
