You can usually just mount the partition:

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/ntfs

where /dev/sda1 is your Windows ntfs partition and /mnt/ntfs is your mount point. If you get an error about ntfs-3g, then you can leave that part out and use the kernel's built in ntfs driver, though it'll probably not be read-write. Or you can download ntfs-3g if it isn't included in RHEL; it's pretty self explanatory.

I don't know if RHEL support this commands or not, but you may give it a try.

Go to console and type "su" (without quotes)
give your root password and then type "yum install ntfs-config" (without quotes)

remember that your windows xp partition should be a NTFS one, other wise it will not work. Now go to System admin and you can see NTFS configuration tool

Configure as you wish.

It should be read mountable in with the old ntfs module. Simply mount it.

I am assuming that you are trying to access a windows partition from the same computer and not across a network.

Did you try:

mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/ntfs

as jefro suggested? No other RPM needed to use the kernel's ntfs driver. If you want to install ntfs-3g, follow the directions at
