Use a kernel that supports ntfs would be the first logical step...

Or you could recompile your kernel. Based on the distribution you are using, go out and look for some kernel comile guides and go at it. Just make sure to go through all of the kernel config options slowly, and plan ahead for anything you may want to comile as a module or biuld into the kernel.

NTFS support is not included in the default kernel.

Before compiling the kernel (if you haven't done it before) try

modprobe ntfs

It might be that the kernel module autoloader fails to load the module for some reason. You could check if the module exists:

find /lib/modules/`uname -r` -name ntfs.o

If modprobe fails, but you find the module, try insmodding it in it's dir:

insmod ./ntfs.o
