Mounting the Windows Partition in Red Hat

I have a new dual-boot machine setup with Windows 2003 and RedHat Enterprise 4. From my RHEL4 enviroment I would like to be able to mount my Win2K3 partition but when I run df to see all avail partitions, it isn't showing. Under SuSE I would be able to see my Windows partition mounted as /windows/c. Is there a command I can use to show my ntfs based partition? Thanks.

Certainly, mkdir /mnt/Win2k3.

Then add /dev/hda1 /mnt/Win2k3 ntfs defaults,users,ro,umask=000 0 0 to /etc/fstab.

Then type mount /mnt/Win2k3.

Note that this only mounts read only. Write support to NTFS from linux is still considered unstable...
