    hi!
    I get this error fs type not supproted by kernel.
    this means that your kernel doesn't support NTFS, you need to compile your kernel to support it. be careful, its not for beginners...

    you can check the latest kernel at www.kernel.org


    hopes this helps!

    You don't need to recompile your kernel on redhat for ntfs support. By default, redhat builds all kernel options as modules.

    Hmmm... ICeMaN: Read that post again and maybe you'll realize how much you just embarrassed yourself... Just don't take it too hard when you find it... I've read posts less carefully, too.

    genlee: I think you do, I don't think NTFS is built in with RedHat 8.0,
    Dolda: I deleted those comments you were referring to.
    I respectfully decline the invitation to join your delusion.

    In 7.3, they built all options as a module including ntfs. I don't know why they would change it in 8.0.

    Redhat 8.0 does not include NTFS support by default, just like they do not include MP3 support.

    http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/info/redhat.html

    that will fix your problem.
