NTFS + Redhat 9

Why i can't mount my ntfs partition without compiling kernel ?
i can compile with slackware or mandrake but i can't do that with redhat !?
is there a way ?

i use,

mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/xp

works with slack and mandrk.

Redhat doesn't have built in NTFS support. Check out this site:

Follow the instructions on this site, and download the latest driver. This will setup your redhat machine with NTFS support.

Is there really a benefit to running linux on an NTFS partition? The Linux NTFS driver doesn't support all of the features of NTFS. I would be surprised if any benefits would outweigh the drawbacks that come with the unsupported features.

In any case, I've got XP on an NTFS partition, RedHat on an ext3 partition, and a fat32 partition for data and that works just fine for me.
