You can mount partitions/drivers by editing your /etc/fstab.

Or mount it manually.

Say your ntfs partition is the partition sda1 you need to make a temporary directory in /mnt, lets call it /mnt/sda1, and mount the device on it by commands in root console
mkdir /mnt/sda1
mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1
ls /mnt/sda1
The last line is to check the content of /mnt/sda1

Cannot be absolutely certain but older Red Hat need special assistance to read ntfs partitions. Think FC3 should be alright with that.
