you need to download and install the linux-ntfs support.

You don't necessarily need to download anything as Linux already comes with support. What error do you get when attempting to mount your NTFS partition? If its not supported by default, you can probably try to load it as a module, modprobe ntfs.
If you can't load as a module, you'll need t recompile your kernel to support NTFS.
Search the forums here, this is asked all the time.

PS. In the future, please use better and more helpful thread titles. Yours doesn't describe your problem in any way. Thanks.

do you mean you literally put that in /etc/fstab because you dont want the word mount in /etc/fstab, it should be like this

/dev/hda1 /mnt/win2000 ntfs defaults,ro 0 0

when trying to mount what error do you get?
what is the output of cat /proc/filesystems?

The first field in /etc/fstab is for the device name of a partition - amongst other things, the word "mount" shouldnt be there (you use that for a temporary mount on the command line)

This is a typical line for fstab - substitute in your partition and mount point in place of my example one.

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs auto,ro,umask=0222 0 0
