From the man page for mount:-
Code:
       -t vfstype
              The argument following the -t is used to indicate the file system type.  The file system types
              which are currently supported include: adfs,  affs,  autofs,  cifs,  coda,  coherent,  cramfs,
              debugfs,  devpts,  efs,  ext,  ext2,  ext3, hfs, hpfs, iso9660, jfs, minix, msdos, ncpfs, nfs,
              nfs4, ntfs, proc, qnx4, ramfs, reiserfs, romfs, smbfs, sysv, tmpfs, udf, ufs,  umsdos,  usbfs,
              vfat, xenix, xfs, xiafs.  Note that coherent, sysv and xenix are equivalent and that xenix and
              coherent will be removed at some point in the future  use sysv instead. Since kernel  version
              2.1.21 the types ext and xiafs do not exist anymore. Earlier, usbfs was known as usbdevfs.
So yes - NTFS is supported.

Furthermore, with ntfs-3g you do much more than read.

http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/b...buildID=159296
Code:
ntfs-3g
Linux NTFS userspace driver
NTFS-3G is a stable, open source, GPL licensed, POSIX, read/write NTFS
driver for Linux and many other operating systems. It provides safe
handling of the Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows 2000, Windows
Vista, Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 NTFS file systems. NTFS-3G can
create, remove, rename, move files, directories, hard links, and streams;
it can read and write normal and transparently compressed files, including
streams and sparse files; it can handle special files like symbolic links,
devices, and FIFOs, ACL, extended attributes; moreover it provides full
file access right and ownership support.

There is native read support in tne kernel I believe.

You'd have to add in write support.

Exactly. By default, you can mount an NTFS file system, but you can't write to it, unless you load the ntfs-3g package. Remember being quite puzzled by that a few years ago.

And atulsaini_22, did you contact RedHat support?? Since you're paying for RHEL, you can call them with such questions.
