[SOLVED] *solved* Lenny automount NTFS partition, and USB and other removable media
This method automounts media and automatically places icons for them on the Gnome desktop.
and check for an entry for the NTFS partition. Mine reads
gksu gedit /etc/fstab
An excellent reference for understanding and editing fstab can be found here.
/dev/hda1 /media/windows ntfs ro,user,noauto,umask=0 0 0
apt-get install gnome-volume-manager
apt-get remove usbmount
Finally, go System>Preferences>Sessions>Startup Programs and make sure Volume Manager is present with a check in the box.
apt-get install pmount
