    maybe your kernel version doesn't support ntfs read /write ...
    check this out:

    OR
    compile a newer kernel(like 2.6.7)

    are you trying to read the linux partition from windows? Or the windows partition from Linux? From what you have said seems to me that you are trying to read the linux partition from windows, this isn't possible (Not that i know of anyway) And it won't show up as a disk in my computer.

    If you're trying to view the windows drive in linux, you will need to mount it either through the /etc/fstab file or using the mount command.

    Another good place to look would be @ RedHat's doc. Here's a link to a post. Checkout the follow ups.

    nope, you will need to update the kernel first, then use fdisk to see your partition table, the partition that says windows, that number (added to hda) is the ntfs partition.

    download the newest kernel from kernel.org, then extract it, and run make menuconfig then make install && make modules_install. Then copy the bzImage and System.map to the boot partition, then you will need to add several lines to grub, but if you have fedora, then a yum update yum upgrade might handle it, or up2date will.
