Try "modprobe ntfs" if it doesn't work then just recompile the kernel with NTFS read-only support enabled in the filesystem section.
If it does work you can mount the NTFS drive with:
mount -t ntfs /dev/hde2 /mnt/ntfsdrive
Replace the device name and mount point with that of your drive.

no. Writing to an NTFS partition is very dangerous and would most likely trash your partition.
