NTFS mount question for Red Hat

Hi everyone,

I am a relatively new Linux user, and hope someone can help me...

I am trying to help a friend share a folder from his Windows XP machine onto a machine running Red Hat Linux (not sure of the version, but it looks recent). The XP's IP is, and the Linux's is They have network connectivity (They can ping each other, as they are using a subnet mask.)

Can someone please help? Thanks in advance... ;-)
