NTFS support for RedHat 9


Hello all,

I just being looking for ways to see my Windows XP NTFS partitions in RedHat like I could with Mandrake 9. It appears that I have to enable kernel support. A simple mount -t NTSF /dev/hda1 /mnt/winxp will not do it. So if anyone can tell me how I enable NTFS support I will think their a champion!

Greatly appreciated. I know I will still not be able to write to an NTFS partition but - as that is still under development.

Redhat doesn't have that module in their default kernel. You'd have to re-compile the kernel, making sure to select the NTFS module...

You don't have to recompile the kernel. You can simply install the rpm that MasterC gave a link to and your ready to go.
