3. Modify your /etc/fstab to add the following (assumes the drive is
ntfs, if it's fat32 modify accordingly, or use 'auto' in place of ntfs
or fat32:

/dev/sdb1    /media/windows ntfs  iocharset=utf8,umask=000  0    0

is what I use. If it is a fat32:

/dev/sdb1    /media/windows fat32  iocharset=utf8,umask=000  0    0


/dev/sdb1    /media/windows auto  iocharset=utf8,umask=000  0    0
