Smile problem configure RHEL5 kernel to read & write NTFS file system.


Hi, i want to configure Red hat enterprise linux 5 "kernel" to read & write windows xp "NTFS" file system.

1. i go to folder /usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-8.el5-i686 than i type command make gconfig , than prompt out the Linux kernel v2.6.18-8.el5 Configuration inside there i have go to enable the NTFS read and write, and also save the setting already, reboot the system, but still cannot mount NTFS partition to read and write.

It sounds as if you aren't actually compiling the new kernel. All NTFS read/write discussion aside, if you make changes to your kernel configuration, you have to recompile the kernel and copy it to a location on your hard drive that your boot loader expects it to be (probably /boot).
