Mounting Windows Partitions in Ubuntu
Ubuntu will automatically mount external drives, but it will not automatically mount internal drives. So this will show you how to mount (or make available for use) internal NTFS-formatted (i.e., Windows) drives in Ubuntu.
First click on the Home Folder to open the file browser.
(If you're using classic Gnome, or if you're using Ubuntu 10.04, you can achieve the same thing as these first two steps by clicking on Places and then selecting the appropriate partition by size.)
If you want the Windows partition permanently mounted at boot time, there's a graphical program for that called ntfs-config, which you can find in the Ubuntu Software Center. It's a bit buggy in Ubuntu 12.04, and it doesn't even work at all in 11.10, but you may have some luck with it in 11.04 or 10.04.
Still a bit buggy in 12:10 when you select options. It may crash. Eventually, though, the settings may stick when you reboot.

I will not give help to people posting in the above places. If you require technical support, start a support thread on the Ubuntu Forums. That is the appropriate place to ask for help.
