Question NTFS drive mounting

HI to all,

I just now installed Fedora Core 3 on my system along with Win Xp. I have 3 NTFS filesystems and 1 FAT32 filesystem in Windows. I mounted the FAT32 partition on to my Linux. But I couldn't do the same for the NTFS systems as I got the message saying that NTFS was not supported by the kernel. I m aware that NTFS is supported as the man page of mount had the line that NTFS was a part of the supported systems since Linux 2.5.something.....

Could anyone tell me what I should do in this regard to mount my NTFS partitions?????

Always works for me, it's only read access, and since it's a kernel module you need to download a new module for every kernel release you install
