During mounting WinXP fs - fs type ntfs not supported by kernel error (RedHat 9)

Hmm, when trying to access files from WinXP, off RedHat 9 (dual booted system), I mount it like so:

# mount /dev/hde1

with my /etc/fstab file having an entry of:

/dev/hde1 /mnt ntfs defaults 0 0

Is this correct? I added this line (after seeing nothing to do with hde1)

My windows partition is NTFS of course.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Since this is still considered a beta level feature at best, wouldn't you need to recompile the kernal for that?

Dont think so, from what I thought, it was possible to get files from your Windows partition, into your Linux partition (by mounting) ... but as you can see I'm having trouble

you dont have to recompile the kernel. you can with the option set-in of course. all you have to do is download the module for ntfs mounting on Redhat and load it.

redhat doesnt come with the module by default
