    Hi and Welcome !

    Is there any reason for using such an obsolete distro? RH9 is very old and not supported by RedHat team. You will face a lot of Hardware/software problems and you wont get any security updates.

    I would suggest you to install Fedora or CentOS. Both are RedHat based and free to download/install.

    Anyways, RH9 doesn't support NTFS Partitions. It support FAT32 pretty well though.
    Let say, /dev/hda1 is FAT32 partition.
    Execute this
    Code:
    su -
    mkdir /media/win
    mount -t  vfat  /dev/hda1  /media/win -o defaults,umask=0
    ls /media/win
    You will have read/write access in FAT32 (/media/win) partition.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
