    You have three options:

    1. You can transiently mount and unmount partitions from any connected hard-drive from command line.
    2. You can setup automatic mounts-on-startup by editing your /etc/fstab file (as root).
    3. You can setup automatic mounts-on-startup using YaST -> Partitioner->Right-Click your ntfs partition->Edit.

    The last one is the easiest, but bear in mind that by default YaST mounts ntfs partitions as read-only to all users
    (except root). Of course this is easily changed within YaST (by removing all optional UID/GID/masks parameters in the
    /etc/fstab entry).

    Or by using Dolphin. Just click on the drive in the left panel. You will have to enter root p/w and it will mount so you can use it as User.

    Dolphin is the file manager of the KDE desktop.

    So if you want to use it, you have to install the KDE desktop beforehand (instead of Gnome, or whatever).

    Then things are really simple, as already written by Fraser_Bell:
    On the left hand side of your (Dolphin) window, which shows the files and folders in a certain directory,
    you get a list of the devices that are available, or that could be mounted.

    Good luck
