In order to help you, we need more information than that.

Are the drives failing to mount? Can you not find the mount point? Are you getting permission problems?

Don't know much about RH Enterprise Edition, but in normal Fedora this can happen if your kernel does not have NTFS support compiled in, or, if it is a kernel that has NTFS support in a module, that module is not loaded. You will not be able to use NTFS partitions if you do not have required code compiled into the kernel or loaded as a module.

Alternatively, you might also need to "mount" the NTFS partition (IF, in fact, you do have some form of NTFS support, either kernel or module based) on a mount point.

For example, I have a fat32 partition that I can mount manually by doing, as root:

mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/win -tvfat

after first creating the win mountpoint by doing

mkdir /mnt/win

You might be able to mount your NTFS partition (if it is at hda1) by doing

mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/win -tntfs

after first creating the mountpoint as detailed above.

i can't see my partitions at all, i have two: fat32 and ntfs, i can see only my linux partition which is /dev/hd6 and cd, so this :
cat /proc/filesystems | grep ntfs
doesn't work

# mount /dev/hda5 /mnt/win -tvfat
mount: mount point /mnt/win does not exist

# mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/win -tntfs
mount: mount point /mnt/win does not exist

google is your friend. This has been asked so often that if you would have searched, you would have gotten your answer a long time ago. if you put the line below in fstab, then you can just type "mount /mnt/windows" and it will mount your ntfs partition.

/dev/hda1 /mnt/<insertMountPointHere> ntfs users,owner,ro,umask=000 0 0
