You'll need to compile a new kernel that has support for the filesystem types.

I heard of a module you can install that will give you access to NTFS without having to compile a new kernel, but I don't know where to get it. Maybe you can find it by searching the forums.

I doubt there would be such a solution for HPFS, so you might as well work up a new kernel and support both, if you really want.

Access to NTFS is still beta. That means it's not really ready for prime time, and you can't hold anybody accountable if it messes up. Because NTFS is a proprietary, closed filesystem, the developers are doing the best they can to make it work correctly, but you could still lose everything on the partition. Especially if you are trying to write to it.

reading the ntfs partition shouldn't cause problems, but don't try to write to it. Unless you dont care about corrupting the partition...then go and get the latest 2.5.x kernel and help test the new ntfs support thats being worked on (not sure, but I think they're working on better ntfs support...right?).
