Question Problem to mount NTFS partition


hi all,

I'm a newbie, just install Red Hat 9 on my computer.

I've get problem to mount the /dev/hda1 - NTFS partition, while I try to do that, I get the error message "fs type ntfs not supported by kernel".

Pls help and tell me how to accomplish it!

Thanks a lot!

Open your file manager and go to /usr/src/redhat. Look for a hidden file called .config. Open that file and scroll down to the section labeled '#Fle systems'. Scroll down and look for 'CONFIG_NTFS_FS=m' or 'CONFIG_NTFS_FS=y'. If you see that, ntfs support is compiled into the kernel, or as a module, and your problem lies elsewhere. If the line reads 'CONFIG_NTFS_FS is not set', then you will have to reconfigure and recompile the kernel.

NTFS support is not included in the default kernel. You do not have to recompile the kernel. Just install the following RPM. BTW this is read only support.

http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/redhat9.html

FYI You will probably find answers to your questions faster if you search the website first.
