Or you can build your Kernel with the NTFS compiled in, and then you can just
mount ntfs easily
mount -t ntfs /dev/hda3 /ntfs --> where hda3 is the NTFS partition, and /ntfs
is the directory you want it to be mounted at.
You can write to NTFS with newer kernels, but it is still in developement. You
have to compile the kernel with support for writing to NTFS though.
