help with mount ntfs drive on RedHat


I found some instruction on the net as following

Code:
$ rpm -ivh kernel-module-ntfs-2.6.10-1.741_FC3-2.1.22-0.rr.4.3.i686.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
1:kernel-module-ntfs-2.6.########################################### [100%]
$ /sbin/modprobe ntfs
FATAL: Module ntfs not found.
tried $ cat /proc/filesystems , but did not see the ntfs in the list.

Can someone help pointing out what i did incorrect? I really need to mount my ntfs drive to this linux machine.

if you only need to mount read only..

then use the command as "su"

mount -t auto /dev/hda1 /mnt

this will give you read permission of the drive...
you will find it in the /mnt directory..

still need help

mount -t auto does not work. It asked me to specify a file system.
I read the mount man page, it say that -t auto will try to mount the drive with filesystem specify in the proc/filesystem.
But my proc/filesystem does not have "ntfs". Thank for trying though.

then use ntfs....as the file system

mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows (ensuring you have used "mkdir /mnt/windows" so there is a windows directory
