I would try mounting it first. A lot of Linux Kernels have built in read-only support for NTFS.

As root do the following

mkdir /mnt/Windows
mount <your windows partition> /mnt/Windows

If it says please specify a filesystem type you'll need to recompile your kernel with support for NTFS.

Ok. I will try it.

If i do neet to re-compile: Im not an expert yet on re-compiling my kernel, so could you give me the commands to type for it and give a very short general Idea of what each one does. Thankx.

Provided you have the kernel source installed, recompiling the kernel is easier than it sounds.

As root

1.cd /usr/src/linux && make menuconfig
2.A menu based configuration utility will pop up. You want ntfs support so press f and then use the arrow keys to select file systems and press enter.
3.Scroll down until you see DOS/FAT/NT file systems and press enter.
4.Scroll down until NTFS support is highlighted and press space until you see an astrik (*) next to it.
5.Press esc three times.
6.When asked if you want to save your kernel configuration say yes.
7.Run the following command :
cd /usr/src/linux && make && make install

The system will proceed to compile and automagically install your kernel image. Make sure to press Y if it asks if you wish to run Lilo.
