I have an NTFS drive on PC-A that I would like automatically mounted on PC-B on startup or through a launcher so that I can access through Nautilus etc..

PC-A and PC-B are both running Natty Narwhal. PC-A is running openssh-server with public private key authentication with a passphrase.

I came accross SSHFS, but I cant figure out how to go about setting it up with a remote NTFS drive or even if it is possible at all.

Quite simple really, I just permanently mounted the NTFS drive on the remote system by editing the fstab file and then mounted it locally using sshfs, now I just need to write a script to automate the local mounting.
