First - post your /etc/fstab file with

su
root password

kedit /etc/fstab

Here's some info to keep in mind for later :

To mount a NTFS filesystem on Boot-up were all users have Read access, put an entry at the bottom of your /etc/fstab file on a new line - (just substitute in your Partition, Mount point and User ID Number ( uid ) in place of my example ones)

Code:
/dev/hda1  /mnt/windows  ntfs  auto,ro,umask=222,uid=501  0  0
You can get your User ID Number by becoming Root user on the command line and typing:

id username – (substitute username with Aaron or Sofie or whatever your username is)

( Red Hat currently doesn’t include a NTFS driver because of uncertainties surrounding the legal status of the driver)

So - to READ a NTFS partition from Red Hat, you can either:
  • Download and install an RPM – or
  • Compile your kernel

Your best just getting the relevant RPM - Check out this site for an RPM
