well you'll just write it the same as any other but replace the filesystem with ntfs: (quick example)
/dev/hda1 /mnt/ntfsdrive ntfs defaults 0 0

.............or another example

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs auto,ro,umask=0222 0 0

(make sure you substitute your partition for the example one above - and make sure you create a mount point first.)

Save the file - and reboot your computer - (if the mount point is /mnt/windows you should check /mnt/windows after the reboot)

Jon - Were posting so fast - did you get this one? - I think yours cut in straight after.

Save the file - and reboot your computer - (if the mount point is /mnt/windows you should check /mnt/windows after the reboot)
