Not sure how to do dial up maybe another helpful sole could be kind enough to help you there but to mount your NTFS partition you would figure out which device it was, for example if it is on the 1st IDE hard drive your drive would be hda so if it was hda1 you would use
mount /dev/hda1 -t ntfs /mountpoint

well - if you still need the info - to setup a dial up inet under fc6 you can simply use pppoe-setup if its over ethernet - or use a prog called Roaring Pinguin - that one allows a general dial up connectivity ... google for more info .. cheers

I believe by default Fedora does not come with the NTFS filesystem enabled in their kernel. You will have to get ntfs-3g. It is very easy to compile and install. I heard you can also try yum install ntfs-3g.

these 2 commands work for me :
1) fdisk -l : gives you a list of all your partitions on the hard drive so you'd know what to mount

2)mount /dev/hda<number_of_partition> /mnt : mount the selected partition to /mnt (ex.: mount /dev/hda1 /mnt)
or to unmount it : umount /dev/hda<number_of_partition> /mnt

When I had FC6 it did not have ntfs-3g in repositories, I had to install it from source from here. In F7, or FC6 (forgot which one), installing ntfs-3g from repositories screwed up the OS because of a problem with SELinux, you either have to put SELinux in passive mode or install from source to avoid this. You'll need to create a mount point such as: /windows, and follow instructions for installation on that web page.
To configure a dial-up modem in FC6 can be a little of a challenge, it is very important to know which modem you are using. One good first step would be to visit Linmodems and do some reading, download and use a small tool called scanModem which will tell you which modem you have, whether it is supported or not, and where to get driver source code, full installation instructions and testing. The output of the scanModem script will produce many text files that you should read, one of which is called "ModemData.txt" which tells what modem you have, the state of the operating system and which one, and links to driver source code and Linmodem maintainers that can assist you if you run into a bind. Just don't expect them to respond instantly as they do this in their spare time, it can take a couple days to get assistance, but they are good.

You'll need to install kernel-devel, kernel-headers packages to compile modem modules for most modems.
