Note that you can destroy the NTFS by attempting to write to it from Linux.

I strongly get the impression that fancypiper is hinting that "umask=0 0 0" is unsuitable for a NTFS filesystem, as it makes it potentially writeable with catastrophic consequences!
"umask=2 2 2" might be more sensible ( and I'll check that other PC!)
Thanks.

Personally, I would use the umask to allow read only and either give permission to users individually or better yet, to make it easier on the sysadm, create a NTFS group and add the user to that group.
