Write support for NTFS is still a bit unstable in Linux. You can read it fine, however, mounting the drive like this:
mount -t ntfs /dev/hdxy /mnt/windows
If you want to try writing, more power to you, but it is, as I said, unstable and may destroy your filesystem. If you really need to share files between Linux and Windows, you can put it on an ext2/ext3 partition. There are programs for Windows that allow you to read and write ext2/3. Check out this link for some Windows programs to read/write ext2/3."Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."
