Red Hat I know what you're thinking, but don't worry. This article isn't 'Yet Another Red Hat 8.0 Review'. This article is primarily about using Red Hat 8.0 if you happen to be a newbie, but it's also about using Red Hat 8.0 if you happen to be a KDE user. Why? I happen to be a KDE user, so it makes sense I'd focus more on what I know the most about. Plus, I still remember the frustration of staring with something akin to terror at a blank command line with lots of ideas about what I'd like to do and very little knowledge of how to do it.

NTFS compiled as module in RH8.0
by captalvins on Tue 8th Oct 2002 16:54 UTC

I have successfully compiled the ntfs module and using it to
read NTFS partition on my desktop.
Here is what I did:
0) become root
1) rpm install the kernel sources that comes with the RH8.0
distribution ( if not aleardy done )
2) cd /usr/src/linux-2.4
3) make oldconfig
4) edit .config file and enable NTFS readonly option
CONFIG_NTFS_FS=m
5) rm /usr/src/linux-2.4/include/linux/modules/*
6) make dep
7) make modules
8) make modules_install
9) cp -R /lib/modules/2.4.18-14custom/kernel/fs/ntfs /lib/modules/2.4.18-14/kernel/fs
10)insmod ntfs

PS:
a) fdisk -l [ this will list all partitions including
the NTFS ones.
b) http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/info/index.html
c) my /etc/fstab line for mounting the ntfs partition in
/dev/hda1 to /mnt/win/C

/dev/hda1 /mnt/win/C ntfs defaults 0 0
