Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hello rahulrawat ,
U can download the module from http://www.linux-ntfs.org/ according to your kernel ver & compile your kernel or else u can download rpm package according to your kernel ver & install it. This will help u mount the NTFS filesystem in read-only mode.
Hope it will solve your probs...
I read your posts and I downloaded the Linux-NTFS rpm and installed it. I have a external harddrive (NTFS) attached to the computer via USB2. When I start the computer, it recognizes the harddrive and displays it but it has the message "Unable to mount selected volume" and "unknown file system type 'ntfs'" when I ask for more info. Suggests/help would be highly appreciated.
From kernel 2.6.15, linux is able to write to ntfs partitions.

NTFS: The big ntfs write(2) rewrite has arrived. We now implement our own
file operations ->write(), ->aio_write(), and ->writev() for regular
files. This replaces the old use of generic_file_write(), et al and
the address space operations ->prepare_write and ->commit_write.
This means that both sparse and non-sparse (unencrypted and
uncompressed) files can now be extended using the normal write(2)
code path. There are two limitations at present and these are that
we never create sparse files and that we only have limited support
for highly fragmented files, i.e. ones whose data attribute is split
across multiple extents. When such a case is encountered,
EOPNOTSUPP is returned.
