[Help needed] Kubuntu-KDE4 won't access ntfs volume

Hi all.
I've been running Ubuntu gutsy on my laptop for ½ a year now, and would very
much like to get Kubuntu on my stationary PC - to begin with as a dual-boot
with WinXP.
Now, I've burned the Kubuntu-KDE4-beta iso to a CD, and it boots from the CD

In Konqueror I can in se left panel see different shortcuts (root, home
etc.) but also my ntfs Volume. Problem is, when I doubleclick on it, I get
an error:
"An error occurred while accessing 'Volume (ntfs)', the system said:
org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume.UnknownFailure: TODO: have to rethink
extra options."

Any idea how I can fix this and access all my Windows data?

I am aware that this is a beta, and it may be buggy - and I also acknowledge
that I'm a KDE-noob - what am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance
