Enabling NTFS read-write on Macintosh entails overriding the default
automount behavior by intentionally creating a conflict. Done correctly,
it allows the volume to be automounted, but a consequence is that the
volume icon does not appear on the Desktop or in Finder.

The hack depends on the volume name. It's very much like LABEL=name in a
Linux fstab. If you have multiple volumes with the same name but
different file systems then you will have problems mounting the non-NTFS
