NTFS mount support is not installed in the default kernel. You have to turn on NTFS support and compile a new kernel. Or you can just install the NTFS driver (just search for linux ntfs driver on google, the site will come right up) via RPM, which is what I did... but this way I was not able to automount with /etc/fstab and just added a mount command in /etc/rc.d/rc.local. Seems rather crude (I AM a newbie afterall), but everytime I compile a new kernel something else goes wrong...
