I would recommend using fuse & ntfs-3g. You may already have the fuse package installed. Try "sudo /sbin/modprobe fuse" or "rpm -q fuse". Also install the ntfs-3g package if it isn't installed. Then use the filetype "ntfs-3g" instead of "ntfs". It is a user level driver. Since they are easier to develop for, the ntfs-3g driver may be better than the kernel's ntfs driver. Using ntfs filesystems in Linux can still be problematic if you don't have Windows because you don't have a tool to repair the filesystem.
