If you want to use NTFS partitions on standard user in Linux, you have to edit your /etc/fstab file. Login to root ('su' command in shell), and you will se:
root@<user home directory>$:_
Next type in shell 'cp /etc/fstab /root/'
Better make always copies of important system files.
After than we can edit our fstab file.
Type (in example, you can use any text editor, even vim): 'emacs /etc/fstab'
Your fstab file will be something like this:
/dev/hda2   /	   		 ext3		 defaults					   0			  0
/dev/hda3   swap			swap		 defaults					  0			  0
/dev/hda1  /mnt/NTFS-C ntfs			ro							  0			  0
proc		/proc   		 proc		 defaults				   0			  0
pts		 /dev/pts		   devpts	   gid=5,mode=600		 0			  0
/dev/fd0	/floppy		   vfat		 noauto							 0			  0
/dev/hdc	/cdrom		  iso9660	  noauto,ro,user			0			  0



This is only example :)
edit line '/dev/hda1 /mnt/NTFS-C ntfs ro 0 0' and add 'user,umask=000'
This line should be like
'/dev/hda1 /mnt/NTFS-C ntfs ro,user,umask=000 0 0'

Save file and type in shell 'mount -a'
And that's all :)
