[ubuntu-uk] Missing desktop link

I added a link on my desktop to my XP partition. Today the icon was
replaced with a link to the CD-Rom my son had left in when he shut down
XP last night. Removing the CD has got rid of that icon, but I haven't
got my XP link back. I can't mount the drive - permission denied.

fsdisk gives:
/dev/sda1   *           1        7833    62918541    7  HPFS/NTFS

I've been searching for the instructions on auto mounting at startup,
but I can't find them. :( I created the fstab with ntfs-config.

I'd like to get my XP link back - but I'd also like to know how it
vanished. Should I have locked it somehow, similar to the way I lock
panel items?
