as root type:
modprobe ntfs

To have linux automatically load the ntfs module add this line to /etc/rc.d/rc.modules

/sbin/modprobe ntfs

Ok that means you havent got the module compiled
either go here and get it
http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/
or recompile your kernel with ntfs support

About the file which distro are you using it might also be called modules.rc
