Mounting NTFS drive on openSUSE in read-write mode

Recently, I installed openSUSE 11.4 on my laptop. The laptop is dual boot with windows7. There was a minor issue. The NTFS drive was mounted read only by default. Editing /etc/fstab fixed the issue. Here was the original entry in the fstab:-

/dev/disk/by-id/ata-FUJITSU_MHV2080BH_PL_NW9ZT682CFW0-part2 /windows/D           ntfs-3g    users,gid=users,fmask=133,dmask=022,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0

I changed this to as below, to make it working
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-FUJITSU_MHV2080BH_PL_NW9ZT682CFW0-part2 /windows/D           ntfs-3g    defaults 0 0
