Giving user/group permissions to read&write Windows partitions?

When I try to access my Windows partitions as normal user it says that I dont have permissions.
So how I could set permissions to my user or group to read&write in there?
Those are ntfs partitions named /ntfs-c and /ntfs-d

-Thanks z.

You need NTFS-3G and FUSE to enable NTFS writing.
And when you mount it you need to provide user id or group id of those users who have the right to write on a ntfs partition.

You could create a new group windows with GID(Group ID) let's say 200, add all users to group windows witch will have that perrmission and edit your /etc/fstab to something like
/dev/hda5 /ntfs-c ntfs-3g rw,gid=200 0 0

btw, you don't need ntfs-3g. The standard ntfs drivers in kernel support writing. It just doesn't work!
