Install "fuse"

You'll need to install the user space file system (fuse), and then you'll have access to the necessary drivers for r/w an NTFS partition.

Hi jmh9403,

Search for fuse-ntfs-3g here
install it
and then mount your ntfs partition as below

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda /mnt
Here, I am assuming your ntfs device is /dev/sda and mount point is /mnt
