The "ntfs" driver and "ntfs-3g" driver do not support the more complicated "dynamic" disks of Windows. Those are created when you use software RAID in Windows, join disks together to form one volume, or in some cases resize partitions.
You can actually use dynamic disks under Windows for software RAID and mount them/dual boot them with mdadm and ntfs-3g or ntfs in the kernel under Linux, but I've only done it with "simple" volumes (Windows terminology), which are not resized, spanned etc.
But that's a subject for another thread...
