Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm not not familiar with centos,but in fedora:
in terminal type fdisk -l [which will list all disks and partitions attached to this computer] you will see s.th like this:
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 1275 10241406 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda2 1276 19456 146038882+ f W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/sda5 1276 2295 8193118+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda6 2296 6757 35840983+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
where /dev/sda5 is your c drive,/dev/sda6 is your d drive and so
go to /mnt and create folder for each drives you want to mount,create c [for c drive],create d [for d drive] and so
then open /etc/fstab file,and add these lines at the end of the file:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/c ntfs defaults 0 0
/dev/sda5 /mnt/d ntfs defaults 0 0
and if you have more drives than c and d,just add them like above,
at last type mount -a,
and after logging off you can see your nfts partitions on /mnt/
I just checked on one of my Centos systems. ntfs-3g is not installed and we didn't remove anything installed by default, so it must not be installed by default.
Also, ntfs-3g is in the repository "epel". I didn't think anything in epel was installed by default (but I'm not sure). I'm not even sure whether epel is enabled by default (it is enabled on all the Centos systems I use because we install several packages from epel on each such system).
