How do you run the backup script when it boots into Linux?

  $ mount
  /dev/hdb1 on /mnt/xp type ntfs (ro)

/etc/fstab:

    /dev/hdb1       /mnt/xp         ntfs    ro              0       0

It mounts as a read-only filesystem when Linux boots.  In your script
to back up your Linux partition, add the NTFS partition as well.
