For that You have to upgrade your kernel..

You have to install Kernel-source rpms  from CD or DVD.after that
follow these steps
1 .go to /usr/src/linux-2.4 (kernel-version of ur system)
2. make mrproper
3. make oldconfig
4 make xconfig
{ enable the options ,that u want to turn on, here u can choose filesystem->ntfs->enable ntfs read support)
5 .make dep
6.make clean
7. go to /usr/src/linux2.4/makefile
8 .change EXTRAVERSION="any new kernel name u want to give"
9. make bzImage
10. make modules
11. make modules_install
12. make install
13. reboot
after these steps Mounting of ntfs will work
