    You need to edit your /etc/fstab.

    Add somethin like this:
    Code:
     /dev/sda1            /windows/C           ntfs       ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=utf8 0 0

    Code:
    /dev/sda1            /windows/C           ntfs       auto,ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=utf8 0 0
    You forgot the auto.

    had you created the mountpoint at all? If not do
    Code:
    su
    [rootpass]
    mkdir /windows
