I don't know if redhat 9 had a mature NTFS kernel module, or a fuse module & ntfs-3g package. You may need to upgrade to a modern Red Hat or Fedora distro. You are running a version that is terribly obsolete and no longer supported with security updates.
To read & write to an NFTS filesystem, using a modern Linux distro, you would install the ntfs-3g package, the ntfsprogs package, and then use the filetype ntfs-3g in /etc/fstab or your mount command.
Here are the options I am using for my Vista partition listed by the mount command.
/dev/sda2 on /mnt/vista type ntfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,fmask=117,dmask=007,uid=1000,gid=1000)
Your UID & GID will be different. You can use your username and group name instead of a number.
sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda2 /mnt/vista/ -o rw,user,fmask=117,dmask=007,uid=jschiwal,gid=jschiwal
The in-kernel ntfs module may be mature enough to write. I don't know however. Until recently, you could only write to a file upto it's current size. But for your version, it certainly isn't mature enough to write. I don't even know if an ntfs driver exists back then.
