mount windows partitions so users (and not just root) can read it

topic sums it up, i have my windows partition mounted at bootup time, but only root can read it

my fstab entry is something like
/dev/hda5 /mnt/windows ntfs defaults,users 0 0
(if the order is not correct here, it is correct in fstab)

what should i change in order to get other than root to be able to read from it?
