Hi!

Assuming you have a Windows partition of type NTFS, you could do:

Code:
sudo mkdir /media/windows
sudo mount /dev/hda1 /media/windows/ -t ntfs -o nls=utf8,umask=0222
You may also consider bookmarking the Ubuntu Unofficial guide for future reference. It's a bit dated, but works like a charm most of the time:
