you're right...the ability to mount ntfs r/w was indeed available way
back but the admonitions were clear that by doing so would likely damage
the filesystem. That sort of made a non-option.

I agree with the OP that it probably should mount an internal IDE drive
somewhere other than /media but I suspect that he originally mounted it
as a user and that's where it appears.

The man pages for ntfs-3g and if needed, http://ntfs-3g.org/support.html
should be all he needs to get it to mount where his heart desires.
