You may want an entry if /etc/fstab for that drive which will cause
it to be mounted read-only at a particular subdirectory under your
root directory, perhaps something like /windows or something.

The line you need to add to /etc/fstab would look something like this:

/dev/hda1       /windows        ntfs     ro,user,uid=????,gid=????  0 0

Substitute your uid/gid for the questionmarks.
