How to temporarily mount a hard drive partition as read-only using Nautilus?

http://askubuntu.com – I hibernated Windows 7, then booted Ubuntu. When I tried to mount the Windows partition, I got this error: I'd just read that switching OSes via hibernating was OK as long as you didn't modify files on the other OS's partition, and I'm glad Nautilus ensures you don't, but I need to copy some files from that partition. Is there a way to make Nautilus temporarily mount it as read-only? I was hoping I could just do something like "right-click->Mount as Read-Only" but that's not an option. (HowTos)
