I take it you're using Services for UNIX? Be warned, that's being end-of-lifed.

It'd be helpful to know what you've tried already.

It depends on how your partition is set up in your /etc/fstab and whether or not your built NTFS support into your kernel (NOT enabled by default for most distros).

Assuming you have indeed set up NTFS support, you can add "user" to the mount options (ex: defaults,user) to allow regular users to mount and unmount the partition. Otherwise, only root can do it.

Computer NTFS mount

Amit for ntfs you need to recompile your kernel with NTFS Support.

Let me know if you want the setps.
