Mounting an NTFS drive in Debian

As an ex Windows user, I still have quite a collection of music on my old NTFS drive that I don’t want to mess with Fortunately you can mount the drive in Linux and read and write to it as you would have done before More here

Being able to access my old Windows drives was one of the big barriers to my coming over to Linux. Once I had trawled the forums and help pages and found out I can still use ntfs to a degree I was sold. The tools won’t make Linux use ntfs, they just allow you to access them.
The process has two dependencies, ntfs-3g and libfuse 2. You will need these two packages installed before you begin the process. Ntfs-3g is a third party package that allows reading and writing to ntfs drives, which is the holy grail for me right now!
