how to recompile kernel for ntfs read only in Redhat *


I have just installed redhat 8 alongside WinXP (ntfs)
when I use the following command,

mount -t ntfs -or /dev/hda1 /mnt/win

I get the message

"ntfs not supported by kernel"

HOW do I recompile my kernel for ntfs read only purposes.

step by step instructions please. NEWBIE here.

No need to recompile the kernel. Use the RPM.

you need ot do more than recompile....
redhat 8 is a 2.4 kernel system.

so will either have to patch your kernel, set the ntfs to YES or MODULE then recompile.
or upgrade to a 2.6 kernel, and update module utils to cope with the newer kernel.

or if your lucky, you might be able to find a recompiled ntfs driver RPM for redhat 8.
