    Do you mean NTFS not nfs ? I think you need ntfs-3g package to access ntfs on Linux.

    What Lakshmipathi said.

    Since you are on RHEL, get the EPEL repo installed (see here) then you can do:
    yum install ntfs-3g
    when you mount the pendrive, you may have to manually specify the file system type:
    mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/blah /mnt/blah
