Unhappy Reading NTFS 2nd Hard Drive

My computer is set up so that I have a 30 gig master running Redhat 9 and GRUB, then a 80 gig slave running WinXP under the NTFS file system. I am trying to find a way for Redhat to read the 2nd HD so I can pull files off of it (ie: my mp3's, etc...). I am very very new to linux, and have hardly any idea what I am doing. Any help would be great.

You will need to download and install the mp3 plug in as Redhat doesn't support it.
