Mounting NTFS on linux


Hello i need some help!!!!!!!


recently, i installed windows XP professional on my system along with RH7.1.
when trying to mount the ntfs volume onto linux, mount says ntfs not supported be kernel. the kernel is 2.4.2-2(the one that ships with RH 7.1). i understand that the kernel needs to be recompiled with NTFS support. but i dont know how to go about doing it. can someone give me step by step advice?

NTFS howto

recompile your kernel and do a <M> on NTFS support inside your linux kernel
read a kernel compile howto to learn more about compiling kernels

realize that NTFS is not writable in linux. there is an experimental write support but plz for the love of god don't use it.

oh if you're still having problems: do: modprobe ntfs and it should be mountable.
