Read/write to windows partions from RH9

Ok, i know this has been asked before but i have a couple other questions

here goes:

my devices and mountpoints involved...

/dev/hdd4 mounted to /share <- anconda made that one
/dev/hda1 mounted to /share/winshare/winc
/dev/hda5 mounted to /share/winshare/wine

hda's are windows, hdd's are linux (but im sure you could see that already)

I added entries for the windows partitions to fstab, just copied and pasted the entry for the vfat partition that anaconda made and changed the mount point /share/winc and changed the dev name to /dev/hda1.

Is this the way to do it? is there something i can add or change to the entry so i dont get a windows write protection error everytime i switch to windows? i would just as soon not switch back to windows, but until my hardware learns to play nice, im stuck...
