i type this in, in the ROOT directory - it will display a load of info...if NTFS is shown...NTFS is supported and it's the command is wrong........i use RH 8.0; but maybe, to some extent this link will be of use..but unfortunately it is RedHat..never used SUSE...
Does SUSE support NTFS as a default?
I think you'll find that the problem was the ntfs module wasn't loaded, modprobe only reports back when something goes wrong ( including an error message if a module is already loaded), to verify that this is the case unmount your ntfs partition unload the ntfs module with "rmmod ntfs" and try to mount it again.
it's not about the distro. Download the kernel from kernel.org, like I always do. I never use distro kernels, they always have problems with my hardware.
The fresh kernel from kernel.org doesn't come with NTFS loaded as a module.
And I know because I just installed it on a computer with winXP in it and it had the NTFS partition. Downloaded the newest kernel, looked and had to click on NTFS...it wasn't enabled at all by default.
