upgrade your kernel to the latest one or else give a try to ntfs-3g its working really fine for me.

Hello :) ,

Please make sure that you have kernal support for ntfs.
--> ls /lib/modules/2.6.18-5-686/kernel/fs/ | grep ntfs

if yes then proceed with mount or please catch rpm for this and then proceed with the instructions below

--> mkdir /mnt/ntfs

--> mount -t ntfs /dev/drive_name /mnt/ntfs
if you want the system to mount this drive every time after boot then

--> vi /etc/fstab
--> add this line
/dev/drive_name /mnt/ntfs ntfs defaults 0 0

--> mount -o remount /mnt/ntfs
this way you will get the ntfs drive mounted 8)
