Adding an NTFS partition on a new drive - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi, I installed RH 9.1 and I would like to share some files from another hard disk formatted using the NTFS format. So I plugged in the new hard disk but Linux doesn't sees it. How do I mount it so I'll be able to setup Samba after that ? Thanks....

    Hi,

    I installed RH 9.1 and I would like to share some files from another
    hard disk formatted using the NTFS format. So I plugged in the new
    hard disk but Linux doesn't sees it. How do I mount it so I'll be
    able to setup Samba after that ?

    Thanks.

    Red Hat does not support NTFS out of the box, you can add this support by
    visiting; http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/

    Word of warning, writing to an NTFS partition is still considered
    dangerous in Linux.

    If you want to share the contents of the drive with samba you need to
    convert the partition (with the files) from NTFS to VFAT32.

    Look up NTFS on sourceforge.net. The kernel modules for mounting it
    read-only are fairly safe, but if you start using the write modules, you
    risk your NTFS file system. Among other problems, the file ownership
    concepts of NTFS are wildly different from UNIX-like file ownership, and you
    can potentially really mess up the permissions if you try moving or editing
    files that need specific ownership.
