Mount NTFS drives using /etc/fstab in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid

This is mostly a note to myself, but here's the line to add to /etc/fstab to mount an existing NTFS drive read-only in Linux (Ubuntu Lucid 10.04).

/dev/sdc2 /mnt/ntfs500 ntfs nls=utf8,uid=mark,gid=mark,dmask=007,fmask=117,ro 0 0

I used the GUI System -> Administration -> Disk Utility to figure out that the drive I wanted was /dev/sdc2.
