Fedora 5 Q-How to mount an NTFS drive

With previous version of RH that I've used (ver7) I would construct my /etc/fstab file as such:

LABEL=/hda1 /mnt/winxp ntfs auto 1 1
LABEL=/1 / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
LABEL=/home /home ext3 defaults 1 2
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
LABEL=SWAP-hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0

Upon startup the 'ntfs' is not reconized(sp)...could someone point out if the above is correct or not...does RH Fedora5 reconize that type of FS? Thanks in advance.

Not 'out of the box' support is not provided due to 'legal issues', re-build the kernel and add this support option back-in or visit;
