Messing with NTFS


I'm running FC3 and i've uses the forums to get my windows driver mounted by editing my
/etc/fstab file. Anyone know if there is a way i can 'mount' my documents folder from windows to my home folder in linux? (even just a way of linking to it)
thanks in advance

I used the very useful NTFS RPMs website when i was mounting the drives originally to /mnt/windows

however i cant see any instructions there to get
c:/Documents and Settings/username/Documents/My Documents/
to appear in
/home/username/
as a folder?

PROBLEM! athought i think its a rather silly one.
When i try the
ln -s /mnt/windows/Documents and Setting/blajnsdknad

it gives me an error cause i'm leaving a space between the "Documents" and the "and" and every other time i leave a space
what should i put in to represent the space and make thing all work?
(i tried "_" but it seams to think this is somthing different from space
