mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /media/windows
... but this will only work if you have the ntfs kernel driver installed. This is seldom installed by default these days as there is a userspace tool that does this instead:

ntfs-3g /dev/hda1 /media/windows

Note - /dev/hda1 should be the device corresponding to the partition that contains the ntfs file system. Find out which one it is with fdisk -l ... /media/windows must exist, create it with mkdir /media/windows

The linuxconfig.org howto is highly generic. If OP does not have ntfs-3g, then there will be a distro-specific package of it to install.

Hi Simon,

It is mentioned there that you should use your distro's repository packages. We will see if it helps. :-)

Then again we do not even know what distribution does shakir uses...

shakir chaudhry:
have you been able to mount that ntfs partition yet?

Which release of RHEL WS? (They are pretty different.)

"it is disable" then enable it.

What kind of network card do you have?
