    rpm -ivh /home/user_name/file_name.rpm
    mount nfts partition....
    Code:
    mount  -t  ntfs  /dev/hdc2   /mount_point

    now add this line in /etc/fstab file for automatic mounting of NTFS partition.

    Code:
    /dev/hdc2    /mount_point   ntfs   ro,defaults,umask=0 0 0
    press 'Enter' key after adding this line. Last line /etc/fstab should be blank. save file and reboot.......

    Linux doesn't support NTFS Write access out of box. you have to install ntfs-3g package for write access. delete NTFS entry from /etc/fstab file and follow instruction given in this Link.

    I get
    Code:
    mount: unkown filesystem type 'ntfs-3g'
    when trying to mount. Of course I replaced /dev/sda1 and /mnt/ntfs_p with /dev/hdc2 and /hdc respectivley. I also noticed that this was for FC6. I'm using FC5. Should it still work?

    yes ! it will work in FC5 too...
    did you install ntfs-3g through 'yum'?
    try to mount manually.
    Code:
    mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/hdc2   /mount_point
