NTFS problem


Hello

I have a problem mounting NTFS drive
Here is it:


[root@swetko swetko]# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/Win_C
mount: fs type ntfs not supported by kernel


So I'm afraid, cause this sounds like I have problem with the kernel

Please tell me how to mount this drive. Do I need to install a module or sth. else

I am using Fedora core 3

I mounted drive sda1 on /mnt/Win_C
but its permissions are forbidden for user and "can read " only for root
as root I tried to change them but i said:

Could not change permissions for /mnt/Win_C.

Is there a command line command with which I can change the premissions

well.. there are a lot of options for mounting including giving users access to mount/unmount and read/write...

but -- are you trying to get write access for ntfs? it just isn't there quite yet...

No
I know writing on NTFS is risky although there are some programs

but I could open /mnt/Win_C only as root

I solved this problem but now
there is another

I tried to play an MP3 and the player said :

due to patent ............blah blah ......... mpeg layer 1/2/3 support is not included in FEDORA 3
what does it mean
how can I play MP3
