You need to install the ntfs-3g package.

yum install ntfs-3g

Thanks for the help. I have installed ntfs-3gp but when I initiate the command
ntffs-3g /dev/hda2 /mnt/windows
It throwing another error as:
FATAL: Module fuse not found.
ntfs-3g-mount: fuse device is missing, try 'modprobe fuse' as root
Any solution?????

Are you trying to mount the partition via:
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/hda1 /media/windows/

Not sure about Red Hat WS 4, but on CentOS 5.1, which is a Red Hat derivative, this works:
yum install fuse fuse-ntfs-3g dkms dkms-fuse

then:
modprobe fuse
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /mnt
