Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

That solved my problem- I don't trust this USB drive anyway, I plugged it into my CentOS box because it was acting up on a Windows XP machine, so I sure don't want to start writing to it just now, even if ntfs-3g is "1.0".
The filesystem type is not ntfs3g but ntfs-3g. You used a wrong command. Use this one, as its documention suggests:
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows
Well, yes, I did use the wrong command. I do that a lot, for various reasons.
Thanks for the correction. Those people who actually install ntfs-3g on their CentOS 5 systems will need to know the right command and they might Google for it instead of reading the documentation, come upon this thread (which placed highly, for some reason, in my Google search looking for the quickest way to add NTFS to a newly installed CentOS 5 system) and get useful information, eventually.
