Enabling filesystem to read NTFS

I remember reading somewhere that in linux you can enable your filesystem to READ the NTFS filesystem... Any idea on how to do that?

Please provide details about what distro you are using. You can recompile your kernel and add ntfs support or some distros may have prebuilt ntfs support packages.
