Add NTFS Support to RedHat 7.2 Kernel


I've got a dual boot PC and would like to access the MP3's, etc... on my Windows partition but the File System is NTFS and by default the RedHat Kernel does not come compiled with support for NTFS.
What do I need to do to add this kind of support? Is the NTFS module loadable, or do I have to add it and recompile? Does this NTFS module come on the 7.2 Install CD's? Thanks in Advance!!

Great tutorial! And yes you have to recompile the kernel becuase the kernel that shipped with RedHat 7.2 doesn't have the ntfs module but you can double check with "modprobe ntfs".

OK, I got the kernel recompiled with the NTFS module loaded. I mounted the NTFS partition, but when I got a ls on the /mnt/WinNT directory the systems hangs... I mean really hangs, I can't even switch over to another terminal using Ctrl+Alt+F1, etc... Here's the command I used to mount the partition

mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/WinNT

Is there something I missed? Do I need to maybe put a ReadOnly option on this command...anyway if anybody's got some ideas I'd really appreciate it, Thanks!!

ntfs

you may want to try to mount it read only...
mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/winnt -o ro

also, what type of NTFS is it? if it's dynamic disk (windoze logical volume), then you won't be able to read it at all.
