Reading Vista NTFS partition on dual-boot system?

I installed Ubuntu as a dual-boot option on a Dell laptop that
also has Windows Vista (NTFS) on the same (and only) disk.
How do I get Linux to mount the Vista partition in read-only mode?
The Vista partition does not appear in my /etc/fstab (below),
so I'm unsure what to try with the mount command.
Or is there a better way?
