Install the fuse and ntfs-3g rpm packages;

yum install ntfs-3g fuse fuse-libs

As root create a couple of line entries in your /etc/fstab file, examples below;

/dev/hdb2               /media/Windows          ntfs-3g auto,users,uid=0,gid=500,umask=000,rw   0 0
/dev/hdb6               /media/Data             vfat    auto,users,uid=0,gid=500,umask=000,rw   0 0
Make sure the mountpoints (/media/Windows and /media/Data) exist before attempting to mount. Feel free to adjust the mountpoint names if desired.

mkdir /media/Windows /media/Data

Also read 'man fstab', 'man mount' and 'man mkdir' minus the single quote marks for the details and additional information.

Also, be aware that support for older Fedora Core releases has been terminated, and the fedora legacy project was closed yesterday. (See this or for details.) That means that, at this time, only FC6 is receiving updates and patches. It also means that you will need to compile ntfs-3g and fuse from source for your (old, unsupported) FC4 system.

Both the fuse and fuse-libs rpm packages can be installed from the FC4 extras repo.
