Partition Won't Mount Properly at Boot

You should be able to configure KDE to auto mount the partition at boot - it's under 'Removeable Devices' (confusingly) in System Settings.

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.
