Hi,
To get NTFS support in Ubuntu, you basically need to intsall ntfs-3g, which will enable reading and writing to NTFS partitions. For a detailed guide on how to install ntfs-3g, please go here:

I hope that solves your problem!

Another HOWTO, including instructions for Ubuntu 7.04, can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MountingWindowsPartitions
