Red Hat Linux does not support NTFS out-of-the box, as Red Hat doesn't want any legal issues by supporting NTFS.

this is the same reason why Red Hat does not support MP3 out-of-the-box anymore, all due to legal issues.

However, there is a very good internet page for helping those people who do want NTFS support in their Red Hat Linux distribution, go to the following URL :

Go to

Search for: Red Hat 8.0 ntfs rpm

Install the kernelupdate according to your kernelversion.

Now u can use the mount command (typ: man mount) or you can download webmin (a very handy tool wich I use to mount my drives).

In this webmin go to system --> disks & networkfilesystems --> add mount (ntfs) and so on.
