Something like


/dev/sda1 /media/sda1 ntfs defaults 0 0
would do, replacing the partitions and mount path with the real ones...

Suppose the drive in which windows is installed have path "/dev/sda3"

/dev/sda3 /media/sda3 ntfs defaults 0 0

i had written like this and saved the fstab file and restarted the system ... but it is not mounted....tell me plz help me out of this problem...

Does the folder /media/sda3 exist? If not, create it. If it does, perhaps check /var/log/boot :)
