problem running a .sh file

im a newb to linux, im running red hat 9. I downloaded a program which allows me to view ntfs drives in linux. In the folder i have unpacked there is a file
in the terminal i know how to cd to the folder then ls to view it. when i try running it i type ./ and this is what i get

[root@localhost ntfs]# ./
/bin/mkdir: cannot create directory `/usr/src': File exists
/bin/ln: creating symbolic link `/usr/src/linux' to `': No such file or directory
Can't find the kernel sources. Please, install them and run this program.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, i really need to be able to perform this task

again many thanks

Don't quite understand why that install file is trying to create /usr/src or link against files that dont exist.

When you get the kernel sources error, it means that you need to use yum or up2date or whatever RH9 uses to install packages and get a package called kernel-devel.

yum install kernel-devel

The easy way to get ntfs support is go here
and get the rpm for Red Hat 9

yum install kernel-module-ntfs.rpm
rpm -Uivh kernel-module-ntfs.rpm
