Partition Won't Mount Properly at Boot

I have an NTFS partition that doesn't mount properly at boot, meaning 
that it mounts but in read-only mode.The funny thing is, I can mount it 
manually and it will work in read/write. But only when it boots does it 
mount in read-only. I use the partition to store OS-independent data 
(Windows 7 / Kubuntu 11.10 dual-boot) so it's really annoying when I 
boot up the computer and go right to Eclipse, and Eclipse complains that 
it can't find the folder because it's not mounted. I have to go back 
out, open up Dolphin, click on the partition to mount it, then return to 
Eclipse. I've already run chkdsk on the partition and Windows reports 0 
errors. Anything else I can do? The other idea I had in mind was to 
create a script to mount it and then have Kubuntu run that script at 
boot, see if it makes a difference.
