When I changed my data partition from FAT32 to NTFS, I re-installed Fedora 6 because of other issues, it did not create a mount point for the NTFS partition. It was aware of it, when I typed "fdisk -l" in a terminal it showed up. I had to install ntfs-3g from source and fuse from source to mount it.
When I had tried installing ntfs-3g from Fedora repositories using yum, my system became useless because of SELinux, I could not do anything as root, could not access system services to disable SELinux even. Then I tried another install and disabled SELinux first before installing ntfs-3g with yum, but I had to manually mount my swap partition upon boot-up, Fedora could not resume swap even with the right configuration in the grub menu.lst. So I resorted to just using ntfs-3g and fuse from source and Fedora is fully functional using this route.
