Angry Having a bit of trouble mounting a NTFS partition... Can anyone help?

Hi guys,

ok.. I've got Redhat 9 running kernel 2.4.20-8 and I have a NTFS partition that I want to mount (has all my mp3's). I downloaded the ntfs kernel from One thing I did wrong was I installed the RPM for a different version than the kernel I'm running. Would that be why I can't mount my NTFS partition? When I try to install the correct version for my kernel I get "a newer version is already installed" Can I uninstall the version I already installed to install the correct one? My fstab file looks like this

LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda2 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
/dev/hdc1 /mnt/win ntfs auto ro 0 0

When I go to mount it like this

mount -t ntfs /dev/hdc1 /mnt/win

I get ntfs not supported by kernel.

Can anyone help me from here?
