Sorry, forgot to add the relevent bits from my fstab; note that his is
from the edgy to feisty upgrade so it shows both the edgy config (hda1)
and the new feisty config (UUID):

# Was: /dev/hda1     /media/windows     ntfs-3g
auto,group=ntfs,umask=007       0       0
# /dev/hda1 -- converted during upgrade to edgy
UUID=EE68xyz /media/windows ntfs-3g defaults,local=en_US.utf8 0 0
# /dev/<your partition> /media/<mount point> ntfs-3g
defaults,locale=en_US.utf8 0 0

I've yet to figure out the reasoning for the UUID vs hda1...
