My dual boot (WinXP) system has a second NTFS drive which I would like to mount. Is there a GUI method of mounting this? I've been looking and done some searches here, but cannot find anything.

I don't know of a GUI way of doing it.
If you're running F8 you've all the software necessary.
Create a folder were you would like the drive to be mounted to.
I use /mnt/Win.
In terminal....
su
/sbin/fdisk -l

This will tell you your drive configuration.
Then open /ect/fstab and add a line similar to ...
/dev/sda1 /mnt/Win ntfs-3g defaults 0 0
Replace sda1 with the appropriate drive letter for your configuration.
This will mount the drive every time you boot with full read/write access.

You must of course have permission to mount the drive, first of all. KDiskfree can mount drives (you can set up the mount and unmount commands here too if they're not already set up). Or, install fwfstab; it's just a GUI for editing /etc/fstab, and includes handy mount and unmount buttons. I use it for this often.
