What do you mean "integrate"? Would you like to install to an ntfs 
ntfs is supported only as far as you can resize an existing ntfs partition 
to make space on your disk without purging the 'other' OS. Also the other 
OS will be recognized and added as an option during installation of the 
boot loader.

You did resize ntfs using the resize option for an existing in the 
installer itself, right?
