    To see the ntfs directories in /mnt, do

    open terminal
    su >root password
    mkdir /mnt/NTFS1
    mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/NTFS1

    This assumes that your windows partition is on hda1, and that you want to call it NTFS1.
    You can call it anything you like, just don't use spaces, linux will think you want 2 separate directories.
    How to know if you are a geek.
