Show NTFS drives on desktop

Hi all,

Can anyone help me out, I'd like to have my Win XP drive shown on my Gnome desktop so I can have access to files etc. Is this possible ?

You can mount your NTFS drives on your system. For that you have to install a module supporting your kernel. You can get rpm of required module and more information on this link .
But these modules only provide read-only support.

You'll have to manually make a shortcut to the device's mount point.

Then edit the shortcut and make it a removable device.
