Just wrote this tut under Linux, saving it here in case sth happens with my brand new NTFS mounts smile.gif

material :
http://www.linux-ntfs.org/

Get your kernel version :
uname -r
for us : 2.6.14-1.1637_FC4

Find the RPM that matches this kernel version.
page : http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=13956
For us : kernel-module-ntfs-2.6.14-1.1637_FC4-2.1.24-0.rr.10.4.x86_64.rpm

Install the RPM (double-click on it).

Let's try to mount one partition :
mkdir /mnt/c
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/c -t ntfs -r -o nls=iso8859-1
(will be /dev/hda1 if your HD isn't SATA)
If installation failed, you'll get an error message <i>mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs'</i>.
Note that you can browse your /dev directory to check your partitions' names (hda1, hda2, hda3, etc, sda1, sda2, etc).
For us : we have
sda1 (C:), sda2 (logical), sda5 (D:), sda6 (E:), sda7 (F:), sda8 (G:), sda9 (linux).
Browse your /mnt/c directory, it should be like your Windows C: drive.

You can mount your other partitions too (optional).

Now, we are going to edit one configuration file so that these partitions are always mounted when Linux starts.
Create a backup of /etc/fstab, then open it and add every partition you want to add this way :
/dev/sda1 /mnt/c ntfs ro,umask=0222 0 0
For us, it gives :
/dev/sda1 /mnt/c ntfs ro,umask=0222 0 0
/dev/sda5 /mnt/d ntfs ro,umask=0222 0 0
/dev/sda6 /mnt/e ntfs ro,umask=0222 0 0
/dev/sda7 /mnt/f ntfs ro,umask=0222 0 0
/dev/sda8 /mnt/g ntfs ro,umask=0222 0 0
Save it.
That's all, when you restart, you'll have your NTFS partitions mounted smile.gif

Edition : tutorial finally added to the site with a bit more details -> Adding NTFS support to Fedora Core
