Traditionally, Linux users mount NTFS partitions for read-write by first obtaining the libfuse2 and ntfs-3g packages and then manually editing the /etc/fstab file. This process required you to remember several things tedious and there was a risk of making the system non-bootable if the /etc/fstab file was incorrectly written.
Today, I was able to do the same thing with the help of a new module called disk-manage on Debian Lenny and Gnome.
Disk-manager detects, mount new unmounted partitions, including NTFS-partitions in real time without requiring a reboot. Disk-manager can be also used to set mount point for the partitions.
To install disk-manager:
# apt-get install disk-manager
