Mounting NTFS partition in Redhat 9?


I created /mnt/ntfs

I ran... mount -t ntfs /dev/hda /mnt/ntfs

but it said...

mount: fs type not supported by kernel

Does this mean I can't view my ntfs partiton at all?

I read that it was possible in Linux to do this...perhaps it depends on the Distro?

Ah..NO...I'm not trying to mount a shared drive on my windows network...I know how to do that. This is a dual boot PC with XP and Linux on it and I want to view the Windows XP NTFS partition.

Sorry it's late :P

R/W NTFS support in the kernel is still experimental and not turned on by default.

To enable R/W NTFS support (locally), you will need to compile a
custom kernel.

If you want to be able to mount NTFS partitions under Redhat 9 you have to recompile the kernel and enable support for it.

You can get the rpm that will add ntfs support from http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/info/redhat.html

thanks Crashed_Again

apologies, i think my problem may have been different to the original post and probably in the wrong place on reflection.

im not actually trying to mount a ntfs drive. i am trying to access a w2k network drive and now have the solution

my problem was i needed to include a uid

mount -t smbfs //windows_box_name/sharename /your_mountpoint -o username=user,password=pass,uid=myuid
