I added the line as described and rebooted. When I tried to mount the
device I was told:
	mount: mount point /media/windows does not exist
What do I need to do or create in this location.
Apologies for my ignorance.

One further unrelated question: I thought I had seen a file manager tool
somewhere similar to windows explorer. But I cannot find it now. Was I
hallucinating. Does such a tool exist? What is it? When I query the help
in nautilus it mentions something about tree views, but I cannot seem to
find how to activate this.
