Red Hat / Fedora does not support the filesystem NTFS "out of the box" for legal concerns, the fix is to install fuse and ntfs-3g;

yum install fuse fuse-libs ntfs-3g

I still fail to see why they do not support it in the kernel. The driver in the kernel is open source does not use any software or anything from Microsoft works better and has write support. Silly red hat people...

Did you have the "fuse" kernel module loaded when you tried to mount an ntfs partition? Also, use "ntfs-3g" as the filetype in your mount command or /etc/fstab entry.
