In the later versions of Mint, ntfs-3g is called automatically when using ntfs mounting in fstab. ntfs-3g has improved tremendously in the past year or so. Very few problems are now popping up when reading and writing to ntfs partitions these days.
Oh great and powerful Fred, I seek guidance and wisdom.
In my experience of putting "auto, user" in "fstab", the folder which is the mount point becomes owned by root, not user
/dev/sda1 / jfs noatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/sda5 /home jfs noatime 0 2
<5th and 6th columns: Dump and fsck options >
dump is a backup utility and fsck is a filesystem check utility. (...).
The 5th column in /etc/fstab is the dump option. Dump checks it and uses the number to decide if a filesystem should be backed up. If it's zero, dump will ignore that filesystem.
The 6th column is a fsck option. fsck looks at the number in the 6th column to determine in which order the filesystems should be checked. If it's zero, fsck won't check the filesystem.
5. dump-freq adjusts the archiving schedule for the partition (used by dump).
6. pass-num indicates the order in which the fsck utility will scan the partitions for errors when the computer powers on. 0 = none, 1 = first, 2 = next (and all others in order)
