mount ntfs (windows) file system in /etc/fstab fails at boot

I am able to mount my windows partition manually by either:
> mount -t ntfs /dev/ad0s1 /windows
or by putting an entry in by /dev/fstab that looks like:
/dev/ad0s1 /windows ntfs ro 2 2
and using command:
> mount /windows
If I leave this entry in my /etc/fstab, the OS reports inconsistency
errors on bootup when it tries to mount and goes into single-user mode.
I then had to remount / for read-write and delete the line in the fstab
before it would boot again.
Am I using the wrong syntax for the fstab entry ?- also, why does it
mount manually with no error - but complain at boot time ?
