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