I Figured out how to view the ntfs drive!!!

I had the ntfs drive settings under fstab all messed up in FC1, so then I found out that I had to add umask=022, but instead of typing in umask=022, I typed in "unmask=022" which gave me a horrendous amount of errors, and headaches, until I finally plugged the printer into Linux, printed out the command I used and someone on the BLUG (my local linux group) pointed out to me that I had spelled umask=022 wrong, so bingo, I added the fstab option umask=022, logged back into my user account, mounted my ntfs drive, and now I can access 5 GB of mp3s.
