How to mount window partition under linux?

Hi. I have separate ntfs partition on which is my music. The problem is how to mount it so that I can listen to the songs in my non-root account ? I use
mount /dev/sda3/ /mnt/disk
but the problem is that I have access to the files only with the root acc. Perhaps I'm missing some parameters.

Also, I want this partition to be mounted every time I boot the linux but I don't know how to do it.

Thanks in advance for the answers.

Hi there,
Back up your /etc/fstab (this is where all the mounts are configured and then add the entry to the file
/dev/sda3 /mnt/disc auto rw,user,noauto 0 0.
This will help. However AFAIK playing music does _not_ require root access. Making changes to the files does.
