Yes you can have access to your Windows, (NTFS), partition in Linux. Just follow the instructions below.
Open a terminal and type: (put your username in place of mine in all cases.)
gksu gedit /etc/fstab
A window will open displaying the fstab file for editing. Put the following line at the end of the file, save and close. ( I am assuming your Windows install is located on the first partition of the first hard drive.)
/dev/sda1 /home/fred/Windows ntfs defaults,umask=007,gid=46 0 0
That is it. Reboot and you should have a folder in your /home named Windows. Clicking on it will open your Windows partition.

Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over and each time expecting a different result.
Democracy is 2 wolves and a lamb voting on the menu. Liberty is an armed lamb protesting the electoral outcome. A Republic negates the need for an armed protest.
