Why dont you just get the RPM?

To READ a NTFS partition from Red Hat, you can either:
  • Download and install an RPM or
  • Compile your kernel

Your best just getting the relevant RPM - Check out this site for an RPM

you should just compile it as a module, you dont have to compile the support into the kernel
