Hi,

you are trying to compile from source but you do not have a compiler.
Is there a reason why you do not just install it from an rpm package?

Try this link:
http://www.linux-ntfs.org/doku.php?i...m_instructions
Or just google for 'redhat5 ntfs rpm'. It will give you plenty results.
Hope this helps.

# yum install ntfs-3g

But if you have no Redhat account,
do not expect to be able to use the OS.

There are two free versions of RH EL 5 :
CentOS 5.5, Scientific Linux SL55.
Please use one of those, if you don't
want to pay for Redhat software / updates.

Do you mean the Redhat version ?

This command will show : cat /etc/redhat-release


This package : kernel-2.6.18-53.el5.src.rpm
is source code (= SRC RPM) for the oldest kernel, EL5.
I don't think, you can use that for anything at all.
And with no 'rpm-build' installed, you can't unpack
source code to /usr/src/redhat/ with # rpm.
..
Suggest : Install CentOS 5.5 instead of Redhat EL 5.

You are supposed to download a rpm which contains the binaries. Try this location:
http://www.linux-ntfs.org/doku.php?id=redhat:rhel5

Download the appropriate rpm-package and repeat the install as described in the link I gave you earlier.
