ntfs permission for non-root

My fstab line shows
/dev/hda1       /mnt/hda1       ntfs    rw,auto,user            0       0
Is there any way to make my windows partition readable by non-root on Debian SID.

You should use the umask option. Set the permissions you want. But avoid setting write permissions, thats experimental.

/dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1 ntfs rw,auto,user,umask = 222 0 0

This is just an example, this way everybody would have read and execute permission.
