I think the following line should do it:
/dev/hda1     /mnt        ntfs   umask=0222      0       0

you may need to put default,umask=0222 I think the default is
implied. You can change /mnt to wherever you want it mounted.

You do know that currently there is no write support to ntfs,
its read only.
