Any way to view NTFS partitions from Red Hat 9?

I was wondering if there is a way to view my NTFS partitions in WindowsXP from Red Hat 9?

You can use the mount command
or add an entry to your /etc/fstab

If you don't understand how to edit /etc/fstab and need more help, post the output of:
fdisk -l
NTFS support is Read-Only.
Do NOT write to NTFS from Linux.
It may corrupt your NTFS filesystem.

Because of liscensing issues Red Hat needs:

an RPM


Re-compile kernel

To actually Read files on your NTFS XP partition.

Check out this site for an RPM
