it can but i dont think RH9 allows it without having to add the appropiate software.RH dont do it in a standard install. you need extra stuff.

hi
mount: fs type ntfs not supported by kernel = ntfs File System, not supported by the kernel. Im guessing red hat kept this out for licence reasons because if not it was damn stupid . .

I just got around this by compiling the kernel with ntfs support. Im guessing that maybe you havn't done this before but really its not complex, this is the best guide:

Wow,
I just looked at the NTFS FAQ for Linux. It looks like there is no way to write to NTFS partitions for Linux.

http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/info/ntfs.html#3.2

I was wondering that same question myself. I havent been into the Linux side of things for a while (Ive been concentrating on Windows support recently) but I am about to delve into it once again. Hope this helps.
