Let me get things clear... You want to moun ntfs as read only. AFAIK, ntfs
support in linux _is_ read only. Write support is 'dangerous' but I do here
there's the program called 'captive' which is supposed to do that properly.

Then... you talk about fat32 partition.. fat32 is not the same as ntfs..

so.. if you want to mount a ntfs partition, you use mount -t ntfs...

if you want to mount fat32 you do.. mount -t vfat..

so.. what exactly is it you wanted again???
