Mounting Windows Partition

I am trying to mount my Windows XP (NTFS) partition- I downloaded the RPM that is in the sticky in this forum and that installed fine. I am not sure what to do from there.
The posts I viewed when I searched for this topic said to type fdisk -l in the terminal, but when I do that I get:
[root@localhost /]# fdisk -l
bash: fdisk: command not found

I would like for the partition to show up on my desktop when I right click and go to Disks (in Gnome). Right now all that is listed is my CDROM drive.

Thanks in advance for the help!

I've not been able to do it after i've install linux. but if you give the drive a mount point during the install like /mnt/win_c it should be there when you start up i have not windows on pc for a long time so i can't recall the drive is in the right-click drives in gnome hope that helps

Here is an example from my /etc/fstab:

/dev/hda1 /windows/C ntfs auto,ro,users,umask=0222 0 0

And on your problem with fdisk not found, if you're SU-ing from your user account, the /sbin and /usr/sbin paths are not included, so you need to specifically doing /sbin/fdisk -l
