Problem Mounting NTFS


I know this is asked all over the board, I searched, but could not find anything that helps. I have Slackware 10.0 and in THIS thread, it says that NTFS partitions can be mounted in the Slackware 10.0 kernel but when I try to it says that NTFS is not able to be mounted in my kernel (bare.i). Do I need to use a different kernel, and if so, how do I change it?

Issue these commands as root:
Code:
modprobe ntfs
cat /proc/filesystems
If you see NTFS as supported FS as a result of the last command, then you should be able to mount a NTFS partition. NTFS comes with the standard Slackware 10.0 linux 2.4.26 kernelmodules but is not loaded by default.

Post the output of what it says exactly.

Basically this is what you have to do as root:

mkdir /mnt/windows
mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows

Now edit your fstab so you dont have to login as root to see it.

pico /etc/fstab

change or add the line

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs ro,user,utf8,umask=022_0_2 < replace the underscores for spaces.
