Replace "defaults" with "ro".

Well if you use the ntfs read only module ( during kernel compilation ) then defaults will do just fine , since there is no write possibility . Not to mention
here that especially in 2.4 kernels using the NTFS write module is strongly
discouraged . In 2.6 kernels there is some writing capability but will a lot of limitation , so IMHO sticking with the safety of the read-only module would
be OK .
