The Red Hat and Fedora are funny in this respect of not supporting ntfs partitions without additional work. Most of the other distros don't have such a hang up.

In the short time I investigated the commands in Post #10 work satisfactorily in Ubuntu, Knoppix, Mandriva, Slax, Gentoo and Slackware familes.
No Biggie... I'll Do Some Further Research On It With The Link Nylex Provided For Me Above...

Tried both links for fedora core 6 at the bottom and I still get same ntfs unknown error...

http://www.gagme.com/greg/linux/fc6-tips.php#ntfs

Neither one of these worked for me...

I'm not a Fedora user, so I don't know for sure. For the first one, though, maybe you need to do a "modprobe ntfs" to load the module?

Did the kmod-ntfs package get installed properly? That's the one that's supposed to contain the module.

Well I tried installing it through the command line and it kept giving me an error... I know you told me to post all errors but I don't think I can repeat it now... I went to fedora's website via firefox... What I did was download the two files that I needed and installed it using a package installer to be honest I don't know what one it does but it installed both those packages by double clicking them in firefox's download window and entering my root password a little window popped up and said checking dependencies it was missing something and it said installing dependencies afterwards it installed the kmod-ntfs package I repeated the same for ntfs-common package and it did the same... Is there anyway I can see if the packages installed correctly via command line???

Try this (assuming the XP partition you want to access is hda1)

in terminal as root
Code:
yum -y install ntfs-3g 
mkdir /mnt/hda1
ntfs-3g /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows
ls /mnt/hda1
Works for me and this thread describes it.

I'm all set with my NTFS... Moving along nicely... Thanks guys for all your help and paintence... One more question though how do I get it to load up on startup... Also I noticed there was unmounting errors upon shutdown was I suppose to do something else before shutting down???

Think you need to google ntfs-3g site to get the rest of the information.
