I just tried to mount my NTFS hda1 and got the following error:

Mount is denied because the NTFS journal file is unclean. Choices are:
A) Shutdown Windows properly.
B) Click the 'Safely Remove Hardware' icon in the Windows taskbar
notification area before disconnecting the device.
C) Use 'Eject' from Windows Explorer to safely remove the device.
D) If you ran chkdsk previously then boot Windows again which will
automatically initialize the journal.
E) Run 'ntfsfix' on Linux which will reset the NTFS journal.
F) Mount the volume read-only by using the 'ro' mount option.
I booted into M$, did a little dance, then returned to the safety of Ubuntu, and I can now access the NTFS drive AND write to it
Thanks for the great tut guys!
