If you have NTFS support enabled in the kernel as a module you have NTFS support. You have to mount the NTFS drive. The kernel doesn't need the NTFS module to tell you the partition is NTFS, only to mount the partition and make it readable. Here is what the line in /etc/fstab should look like:
/dev/sda3 /windows/C ntfs ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=utf8 0 0
Just change the first part to the proper partition, the second part to the right mount point, and leave everything else. Cd to /usr/src/linux and run depmod. Issue the command:
or whatever mount point the NTFS partition uses. Then, cd /windows/C. Then, ls. There should be all the files.
