This is a regular question around here, try doing a search for edit fstab to add windows; Much less waiting to do the search then wait for a response.

This is my fstab, take a look:

PHP Code:
  GNU nano 1.3.11                    File: /etc/fstab

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
/dev/hda2       /               ext3    defaults,errors=remount-ro 0       1
/dev/hda6       /home           ext3    defaults        0       2
/dev/hda5       none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/hdc        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
/dev/hdd        /media/cdrom1   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
/dev/hdb1       /mnt/storage    vfat    noauto,users,exec,umask=000     0       0
/dev/hda1       /windows        ntfs    noauto,users,exec,ro,umask=000  0       0
/dev/sda1       /mnt/sda1       vfat    noauto,users,exec,umask=000     0       0
/dev/sda2       /mnt/sda2       vfat    noauto,users,exec,umask=000     0       0 
Hope this helps,
Eric and da Fur.
