Not enough info. Is your C: on the same computer as Ubuntu (dual-boot) or is it a different computer on a network? – Mark Henderson Jun 20 '11 at 5:38

Right click your C drive then go to Properties > Sharing > Advanced Sharing and tick "Share this folder"

On your Ubuntu pc:

$ sudo apt-get install smbfs
$ sudo mkdir /mnt/c
$ sudo mount -t smbfs // /mntc -o username=<yourusername>,password=<yourpassword>

(assuming that your windows machine has IP address and you have chosen "c" as your share name)

Try this link.

It tells you how to install ntfs-config. Once you have that software, you can permanently mount your Windows partition.

This assumes that your Windows drive is on the same computer. If you want a network share, follow Russell's suggestion. – Chance Oct 8 '10 at 19:32
