NTFS problesm on Slackware 12.2

I am new to linux and I have been searching for an answer and I have found some information but nothing that has fixed my problem. Basicly I am trying to make it so I can acess mt ntfs drives and i added this to my fstab "/dev/hdd3 /mnt/ntfs ntfs-3g defaults 0 0" and it did fix the TODO error but now instead I get "Permissions denied" woth an ok button when i try and click into the drive. I am currently logged on as root in the GUI kde i think its called and the error happens when i try and click on the drive in my media storage dir.
Edit I got it working sort of
Edit" I sort of got it fixed with a terminal command I was able to get the drives readable but I think i saw someone say that resets when you restart

/etc/fstab entry this will allow you so use the partition and give you permission.
/dev/hdd3 /mnt/ntfs ntfs ro,user,auto,noexec,umask=0 0 0
now make sure you create the directory /mnt/ntfs
all should work auto means to look for and load all the typs of ntfs modules to use that partition I believe. users means that group users. can read and use
