mounting win2k - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I have my win2k on hda1 and RH9 on other partitions. I am tring to mount the win2k from RH9 with 'mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/win2k'. But I get the error > mount: fs type ntfs not supported by kernel Am I doing anything wrong or do I really have to recompile? Is it usual for the kernel not supporting ntfs? Is it a loadable module? I guess I am lost. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, NS...

    Default mounting win2k

    Am I doing anything wrong or do I really have to recompile? Is it usual
    for the kernel not supporting ntfs? Is it a loadable module?
    I guess I am lost. Any help is appreciated.

    ntfs support can either be built into the kernel or as a loadable module.
    If you're using the stock RH9 kernel chances are there is already a module
    build for it. Try "modprobe ntfs" and if there are no complaints then try
    mounting the filesystem again.

    If you get an error that no such module exists, then you will have to
    build it. You don't need to compile the whole kernel, just the ntfs
    module.

    The ntfs modules are not considered stable yet, especially the ntfs-write
    module. You can easily download appropriate RPM's to allow this behavior
    from ntfs.sourceforge.net: they do need to be specific to or compiled as
    part of your kernel.
