Hi Kapil

You need to recompile the kernel, During recompilation select NTFS file system support.

Re: Fedora core 2 doesnot support NTFS

you can:
1.recompile your kernel and add support for NTFS file system (read only).

2. Simply download RPM from:
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/linux-ntfs/kernel-ntfs-2.6.5-1.358.i686.rpm
and install it with:
rpm -ivh kernel-ntfs-2.6.5-1.358.i686.rpm

also read only.

Re: Fedora core 2 doesnot support NTFS

The NTFS module should be added to your current kernel. You can also use yum to install the module:

yum install kernel-module-ntfs-$(uname -r)
Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?

Re: Fedora core 2 doesnot support NTFS

which kernel version you are working now? Check this as,

# uname -a

# cat /etc/release or
# cat /etc/issue

Re: Fedora core 2 doesnot support NTFS

Hi
While booting you have to boot from the kernel 2.6...select this from the boot loader menu and try to install the rpm
