Default Reading Vista NTFS partition on dual-boot system?

Hi,

I installed Ubuntu as a dual-boot option on a Dell laptop that
also has Windows Vista (NTFS) on the same (and only) disk.
How do I get Linux to mount the Vista partition in read-only mode?
The Vista partition does not appear in my /etc/fstab (below),
so I'm unsure what to try with the mount command.
Or is there a better way?

Thanks,
Charlie

/etc/fstab:
# /dev/sda5
UUID=7d39d77a-7c79-4a97-86c5-673db5782738 / ext3
defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
# /dev/sda6
UUID=7c61d4a3-9284-4ff9-a537-c58470b4c27c none swap sw
0 0
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec 0 0

This works for me:
# /dev/sdb1
/dev/sdb1 /media/windows ntfs iocharset=utf8,umask=000 0 0

Note:
1. Change sdb1 to whatever your windows drive is.
2. Make sure to create a /media/<name> folder where your windows drive
can be mounted. I use /media/windows but you can use whatever is
convenient for you - example: /media/Vista
