    Let's just work on the ntfs first.
    edit the fstab file as above. This is how to do it. Open a terminal and type this:

    Code:
    kdesu kwrite /etc/fstab
    enter your password as required and edit and save the file, then reboot

    Do the directories actually exist in your tree

    Go to View in Dolphin - Places - Panels
    Check the Folders option
    go down to the w's
    Are folders there Eg:/windows/c
