Put into your Linux box a HDD with NTFS system on it.. you would want to be able to read and write to it under user account, not only as root.

root#: fdisk -l

To find all the hard drives installed in your system.. locate the one that looks like freshly installed and

root#: mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /mnt/hdd -o force,uid=userID

where sdb1 is the name of that HDD you want to mount, and userID is your username.
