Windows HD

        I've got two hard drives, seen by Linux as hda and hdb. I have a
windblows partition taking up all of hda, and all my linux stuff is on
hdb. Mandrake automatically detected my windblows on hda (cool :)), and
mounts it at boot under /mnt/windows. The drive gets read perfectly,
but it will not let me add or delete files. I've tried many different
combinations in /etc/fstab, but I can't seem to get write access to
/mnt/windows, even as root user!

Any help here would be hot!
