This is easily doable but I'll need to see a print out of your /etc/fstab from Ubuntu. Post that up and I can help. Basically, you'll need to find out the BLKID of the NTFS partition. And the on a line in your /etc/fstab you'll make that particular BLKID 'noauto'. – boehj May 8 '11 at 8:12
That will make Nautilus show the partition icon, so you can double-click to mount it, right? Guess it wont help too much. – MestreLion May 28 '11 at 0:04

Install NTFS configuration tool and Mount Manager from Software center. U can check and uncheck wanted partition from Mount manager and NTFS C tool. Invisibe i Understand Unmount.
