Question my ntfs partition won't be detected in fedora core 2


Hello there... i would appreciate someone could help me. i am using Fedora Core 2 and i cannot find my second partition. i tried to mount it and it could not be mounted because it is NTFS. i have asked for help and they told me to re-compile kernel. is there any other possible way to make linux recognise this partition? if not, could someone tell me what to do to be ready to recompile my kernel...
even if it is WAY too difficult for me i can give it a try... i don't want to install win-blows again
Sorry for my bad english.
Thanks in advance for your help

Fedore Core 1 (and probably 2) doesn't have a link in /bin or /usr/bin for /sbin/modprobe, so you'll have to type it all out: /sbin/modprobe ntfs.

http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/downloads.html

Go to that website, and install the RPM for your system. Fedora doenst come with NTFS support. Once you have installed that package, mount the drive by typing (as root):

mount /dev/(hdd name) /(location you want it to be mounted to)

Hope this helps, if you need more info just ask
