I would like to know how I can mount an NTFS file system.
I have enabled readonly support for NTFS in the kernel
(version 2.2.13) but my fstab man page says nothing
about ntfs. I am dual booting Win2000 and Linux and
would like to copy some word files to my Linux partition
so that I may view them with WordPerfect and print them
to the remote printer attached to my Linux OS.

"man mount" contains a section "Mount options for ntfs"  , which you can
use for options field in the fstab.  The type field has to be set to
ntfs and all other fields have the same meaning as for all other
