you have to rebuild your kernel with ntfs support.

you can compile your kernel with ntfs support...

there's also several projects on the web that allow you to get ntfs access...

i can think of:

http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/

there's another project that uses actual windows files to obtain reliable write support, but i'm not sure what the deal is there...

say your kernel # is 2.6.7 and you have the source

# cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.7
# make menuconfig
(active <M> to "File systems/NTFS file system support (read only)",
exit&save)
# make modules SUBDIRS=fs/ntfs
# make modules_install SUBDIRS=fs/ntfs
# insmod /lib/modules/2.6.7/kernel/fs/ntfs/ntfs.o

now you have ntfs support, this is how you mount
# mkdir /mnt/windows
then you can upadte your /etc/fstab to contain the following line:
# /dev/hda3 /mnt/windows ntfs ro,users,exec,uid=500,iocharset=iso8859-1 0 0
save&exit
# mount /mnt/windows
# cd /mnt/windows
POOF!


(hda3 will be changed to whatever your windows partition is)
(lthere are all sorts of different options for fstab if you google around)
