You are going to need to add a line to your /etc/fstab file.

First, make a folder for it to mount to. Either in your home directory or it the /mnt directory.

Than had a line much like this to your /etc/fstab

CODE
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs umask=000,users,auto 0 0


Obviously you will need to adjust the drive address and the mount directory to match what you want. But that should do it for you.

Fedora default install does not include NTFS support.

BTW since this is read only support umask=000 will not work. Use umask=222 instead.

If this is for sharing data between a dual boot system the best method IMHO is to create a seperate FAT32 partition.

the umask=000 works for me, but 222 should work to.

I wouldn't expect it to work but then I do not have any NTFS partitions to mess with either. smile.gif

Try my statement with "umask=222" that should work for sure. If it doesn't for some reason, try 000
