NTFS is not available on the CD. You can download drivers for it here:

http://linux-nfts.sourceforge.net

You need to have the matching one for your kernel (`rpm -q kernel` to find out).

This is a FAQ. Can an NTFS user wikify this?

hda= primary master
hdb= primary slave
hdc= secondary master
hdd= secondary slave

Most likely the NTFS partition is #1. So you'd do something like:

Code:
/sbin/modprobe ntfs
mkdir /mnt/windoz
mount /dev/hdb1 /mnt/windoz


So your drive would appear under /mnt/windoz. Subtitute for hdb1 with your correct drive/partition. Running `dmesg` may give you some info about where the drive is (or `dmesg | grep hd`).

this link helped me out, should be easy enough for you to follow.

but i would also advise you to read my 'NTFS grief' post and follow the procedure i did to convert to FAT32 so that you can write to the drive.

Hi,

Get an xterm window and do "su -" {su minus sign}.
You should be prompted for a root passwd, which you should
have set up while installing BLAG.

Then do whatever the code tels you to do.

Hope this helps.
