fstab entry


I've tried without success to add an entry to my fstab file so that when I boot I will be able to see my ntfs partition.

here is the command that I type when I want to mount that drive:
mount /dev/hdb1 /mnt/ntfs -t ntfs -r -o umask=0222

the command works fine but what should the entry in the fstab file look like?


My current fstab file:
LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
