You can mount it alright, but you'll only be able to read from it.
Writing to an NTFS partition is not 100% and if you do enable write support you risk corrupting your NTFS partition.

my /dev/hda1 is ntfs . so i tried to mount /dev/hda1 -mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1
then it says than the filesystem not supported(something similar,i am winmachine now).

my kernel is the one comes with redhat 7.2(i think it is 2.4.7). does this kernel support ntfs?

thanx

pretty sure it's not comiled in by default. i presume that that mount command you gave is a mistake

mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/win

Redhat don't even conpile ntfs as a module, if you want it in redhat you'll have to build a new kernel.
