Welcome to the list and Ubuntu!

Check this link: http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu_Edgy#Windows and
google for others (the settings suggested may not be what you want.)

Writing to the NTFS from Ubuntu is a different story. Some people can do
it but others point out that it is not a good idea. Google for NTFS and
Linux to get a feel for where things stand.

Windows applications can be used (maybe) if you use a program called
wine. But the program would be installed on the Ubuntu side of your
machine, not the Windows side.

Again check this link:

Good luck!
