Haven't used Fedora for a long time now but will try to help you out. In order to see your NTFS partition, you would have to include ntfs filesystem driver into your kernel as Fedora does not include them by default.

I don't know how much you know about rpm installation, mount points, command line and man pages. but I'll try to elaborate.

First,
Find out what exact kernel version you are using...you can look at /boot directory to see what you have there.

Based on that you can look at linux-ntfs.org site. Download those rpm and install them using
Code:
rpm -ivh /path/to/rpm-name.rpm
replace /path/to/rpm-name.rpm with the appropriate path and rpm name.

In Linux, you need to mount discs/partitions before you can see or use them. Once you install ntfs rpms, you would have to mount the ntfs partition. Search this forum or google for help on mount command or type
Code:
man mount
to see help on mount command.

To get mp3 and dvd playback, which again is not installed by default in fedora, you need to setup yum to install those. Look up on google to setup yum with appropriate repositories. Dag Wieers repo is one of the best out there. check out http://dag.wieers.com/ for instructions.

Check out the link below too...one of the best.

Once you have yum installed (Which you probably do already), I recommend using xmms-mp3. If you're used to winamp, you'll feel familiar with it's interface.

To install xmms-mp3 using yum, type in a terminal window:

Code:
yum install xmms-mp3
This should install xmms-mp3 on your system. Make sure your soundcard is working first, though.

first thing you have to do as mentioned above is to update your kernel.go to: http://www.linux-ntfs.org/content/view/187/

Then you go to /etc/fstab and you add your folder you want to mount in the mounting table.

for example: /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs defaults,unmask=0222 0 0

Then you open the console and write: mount -a

Thats all...you must have access to your windows partition through your mounted directory.In my example at: /mnt/windows

Hope i was helpful

Well, if you don't know what yum is then you ought to search google. There are many tutorials on it. YUM basically is a package/software management tools. Installs, removes and upgrades software and its dependencies and more.

You most likely have a WinModem. Search google for it and you would know the problems associated with it. I strongly suggest you get a internal or external pci modem. Look at www.linuxquestions.org/hcl/ to find out the appropriate hardware.

Use www.google.com/linux to look for any questions you have...it is a treasure trove.

Tux,
