Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Don't know much about RH Enterprise Edition, but in normal Fedora this can happen if your kernel does not have NTFS support compiled in, or, if it is a kernel that has NTFS support in a module, that module is not loaded. You will not be able to use NTFS partitions if you do not have required code compiled into the kernel or loaded as a module.
Alternatively, you might also need to "mount" the NTFS partition (IF, in fact, you do have some form of NTFS support, either kernel or module based) on a mount point.
For example, I have a fat32 partition that I can mount manually by doing, as root:
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/win -tvfat
after first creating the win mountpoint by doing
You might be able to mount your NTFS partition (if it is at hda1) by doing
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/win -tntfs
after first creating the mountpoint as detailed above.
google is your friend. This has been asked so often that if you would have searched, you would have gotten your answer a long time ago. if you put the line below in fstab, then you can just type "mount /mnt/windows" and it will mount your ntfs partition.
