    You need to recompile your kernel to support NTFS read (and write if desired).
    To compile your kernel, first make sure that your kernel source is installed, and then cd to /usr/src/linux and:
    Code:
    su -
    make menuconfig
    and follow the instructions specific to your kernel to "install" your new kernel.

    Get the NTFS driver RPM from http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/index.html

    Please make sure you read the instructions and related documentation on the site before using the driver.
