This works for me:
/dev/sdb1 /media/windows ntfs iocharset=utf8,umask=000 0 0
1. Change sdb1 to whatever your windows drive is.
2. Make sure to create a /media/<name> folder where your windows drive
can be mounted. I use /media/windows but you can use whatever is
convenient for you - example: /media/Vista
