How to detect NTFS partition

I have 2 hard disk. One is C: and one is D:
C: hard drive is where i make my partition for windows (30GB) and Linux (10GB). Right now, i cannot detect the windows partition.

Example, all my mp3's and mpg videos are in the windows partition. I want to access my mp3's and mpg when i boot in Fedora. But when i'm in Fedora, i cannot access the windows partition. How to detect my NTFS partition? I'm using Fedora Core 3.

Hi jojojo,

NTFS is not supported in the kernel that ships with FC3, however, you can add the needed (experimental !!) module and you'll be able to READ ntfs partitions.

You can check out to download the needed RPM and get instructions.
