now every new kernel has ntfs and hpfs read and write support but its dangerous. and it not depends on versions of linux. it depends on kernel.
as it is dangerous so every distribution only add its module for mount it as read-only , so you need a compiled kernel.

when you do "make menuconfig" or "make xconfig"
there will be an option above all
Prompt for development and/or incomplete code/driver
enable it.

then enter in the "file systems" section
and enable
ntfs read-only support
then it wil show you another option
ntfs read-write support
enable it too.
same for hpfs support.
good luck!

Farhan,
apparently, the NTFS driver is still too unstable for redhat, so they don't bundle it with their distro. You can get it from http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/info/redhat.html. I have no idea abt hpfs support.
