I'm not sure whether the conversion has affected anything detrimentally - however - these are two typical lines used to mount NTFS (one temporarily one in fstab)

First : Create a mount point as root user in a shell

root password

mkdir /mnt/windows

then, for a temporary mount:

mount t ntfs o ro /dev/hda7 /mnt/windows

Start off with this temporary one above - if it works out then add the one below to fstab.

A typical /etc/fstab line

/dev/hda7 /mnt/windows ntfs auto,ro,umask=0222 0 0
