You need to download a patch.. it is I think named as kernel-ntfs.x.rpm . After that you can mount NTFS.

Hello,

I downloaded the patch kernel-ntfs-2.4.20-13.7smp.i386.rpm and installed it but it still does not work. I followed the method which you provided
/dev/hda1               /mnt/c                  ntfs    users,owner,ro,umask=000    0 0

Regards,
Christopher.

Hello,

I got the error "fs type ntfs not supported by kernel", while booting the system. I tried to mount three NTFS drives and all three gave the same error, while I am able to mount FAT32 drives without any problem.

Regards,
Christopher.

just recompile your kernel with NTFS file system supported.

Do one thing, install ntfs modiuke i.e which has extension .o -, after -that -install it using
#insmod module-name.o

where modul-le-name is name of ur kernel ntfs module

ntfs module is generally named as ntfs.o It is better that you add module autoloader support in the kernel or recompile ntfs module into the kernel
