Just a quick note on getting ntfs filesystem support for Redhat linux 9.0 - it's just a simple matter of installing an rpm. Here's a dump of the commands I just called to install the package:

cd /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/   # doesn't really matter where you cd to
wget http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/linux-ntfs/kernel-ntfs-2.4.20-8.i686.rpm
rpm -ivh kernel-ntfs-2.4.20-8.i686.rpm

and here's a trace of what happened:

[root@kerenski i386]# wget http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/linux-ntfs/kernel-ntfs-2.4.20-8.i686.rpm
--19:27:15--  http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/linux-ntfs/kernel-ntfs-2.4.20-8.i686.rpm

The Linux NTFS RPM has been successfully installed.
 
Please read the NTFS FAQ if you want to know how to:
 
 * Mount an NTFS partition
 * Change the permissions/ownership of a mounted NTFS partition
 * Automatically mount an NTFS partition

Then all I need to do is mount /dev/hda1 /win/ to mount the ntfs partition into /win
