You can do one of two things.
1) Recompile your kernel (intermediate to hard)
2) Install the NTFS module into your kernel (easy to intermediate)
If you recompile your kernel, the option is under File systems -> DOS/FAT/NT Filesytems -> NTFS file system support. Don't enable write support...you could ruin the NTFS partition.
If you installed the module, it should work fine out of the box if you do it right. Google for NTFS module if you want to go that route.
NTFS only has read support so far. Read/Write is not supported just yet, and anything that is out right now is still kind of experimental (when it comes to writing data to the disc). Reading is perfectly compatable and safe.
