the module is already on your computer. It is under /lib/modules/<your kernel>/. Just do the modprobe to load the module and it will work....

    Doesn't the kernel modprobe automagically when it misses the filesystem driver, or is it just as I've always assumed?

    I doesn't for me, though redhat could be different.

    Diff Distro

    Hi

    I was using mandrake 8 which mounted my NTFS partition no problem.

    I used to right click on the desktop in GNOME and choose Disks / WINDOWS or something like that anyway. and it would load up perfectly.

    Also. I then used partition magic to shrink my win partition and created a small fat partition just for transfering files between Linux and XP.

    I wouldn't promise anything about partition magic, though. In my experience it is very error-prone when dealing with NTFS disks. Note that an error means that you probably lose that file system, so I would recommend against it.
