Last time I checked (about a year ago) you can only mount NTFS filesystems as read-only. At the time I had to download a package that allowed it, but that was Redhat 7.2, I think, so maybe your distro has it packaged.

Just an addition how can you acess NTFS drivers over a network?

There are some NTFS mount posts you can find here.
Just do a search using NTFS mount.

You must have ntfs support in the kernel- compiled in or as a module.
then: mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/c_drive

If that works, then add:
/dev/hda1 /mnt/c_drive ntfs defaults 0 0

to your /etc/fstab to mount it automagically
