    I would login as root and find out device name of the ntfs partition first and then mount it to some mount point. In SuSE 10.0 or above, root user can read ntfs partition but can not write data to it. Don't know if it works for other distr.

    my example,

    root$ fdisk -l

    /dev/sda1 1 2612 20972826+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
    ....

    root$ mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /xp

    or in your fstab file (should be in /etc)
    add the following line

    /dev/sda1 /xp ntfs user 0 0

    then, next time you don't have to mount it again.

    Fedora doesn't support NTFS read access out of box. you have to install 'kmod' patch for that. execute this
    Code:
    yum -y install kmod-ntfs
    for NTFS read/write access. check this Tutorial.

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
