Smile How to know my current Linux Kernel can support how many files system include R&W.

Now i am using RHEL AS3, i using the command # uname -r to see my current kernel version. ok, lets said my kernel version is 2.4.51, whatever i can search from internet this kernel version can support how many files system, as i know this kernel cannot READ/WRITE NTFS files system. So i dont want using "GUESS" like key the command # mount -v /hdb1 /mnt/hdb1 than the system will show can or cannot right, So is it have any command or see the file to know this my current LINUX OS can support How many files system. The /etc/fstab just see only the current mount files system, so this not enought.

Thank you very much...

There is a file which contains the names of the filesystems that your kernel could potentially work with.
cat /proc/filesystem
Note that while having a fresh kernel doesn't exactly correlate with it being able to work with more filesystems than old ones.

Also, next time please google... a simple phrase as 'show filesystems in linux' returns a perfectly good first result.
