Question Accessing a NTFS drive through wine?

I use Red Hat 8.0 and I just downloaded WINE and the tutorial I used said how to access a FAT32 drive but not how to access a NTFS drive, which is what I have. You know how to do this please help.

You probably need new kernel which supports NTFS(I think all 2.6.x do).
Then you mount that partition to some directory, then you set that directory to be wine's
C: or whatever disk.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
