    What will be the line for /etc/fstab to mount ntfs?

    /dev/ad0sx /media/sdaX .............

    Using the read-only native NTFS module or the third-party read/write sysutils/fusefs-ntfs port?

    If the former:
    Code:
    /dev/ad0sx /media/sdaX ntfs ro 0 0

    Then mount using
    # mount /media/sdaX

    If the latter, search this forum. It has been asked gazillion times.

    I don't want to manually mount it with mount_ntfs.
    I want to edit /etc/fstab to mount it if i click it from file manager it will be mounted.
    How can it be done.

    That command shows a specific part of the man page, which you are supposed to read. As far as read/write, leave out the read-only flag.

    If you use Gnome, NTFS rw automounting from file manager does not work on FreeBSD. You can hack to make it half-working (e.g. you can't unmount it) For rw, you have to use ntfs-3g and it is not 100% integrated into Gnome yet on FreeBSD. Just manually mount it at boot time by editing /etc/fstab.
