If you don't have the directory already...you would need to be root
Code:
mkdir /mnt/ntfs
Code:
mount -t ntfs -o ro /dev/hdXY /mnt/ntfs
replace X with your device and Y with your partition-number.

I recommend you use "ro" read-only option since writing to ntfs is still experimental. Just copy over the file

Code:
cp /mnt/ntfs/dir/filename /home/~your-username/directory
That's it.

If you want to mount it automatically at boot you would have to append the /etc/fstab file with appropriate information.

Tux,

Run Level's are scenarios under which your OS would run.

Here's more info on run levels. One more
here

Bootloaders are a method of starting operating system and sometimes modifying startup setting of a particular OS.

You can find out more about differences in Lilo and Grub on www.google.com/linux.

Well, what is the file type? Since you would be mounting ntfs as read-only. You won't be able to run any executable file. If you are trying to open a document or spreadsheet, you will only be able to see its contents...not change it (again read-only thing). If you want to play music or movie...you won't have any problem.

Tux,
