Hello friends this is prabin. I have redhat linux 8.0 and Windows 2000 server in my system. Last time when I tried to mount ntfs from linux it display error message that it's kernel did not support ntfs. So I download other kernel form internet which support ntfs and tried to install from linux it display error message "the following package not found on your system. Installation cannot continue until it is installed. un locatable package Kernel=2.4.21-20.1.2024.2.1.nptl required Kernel-ntfs."
what it the problem? if my downloaded kernel file is not valid then please tell me the link of valid kernel file.

make sure you have the ntfs module insert.
you can do a lsmod to check first, the module have to be insert first before you can mount.

http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/info/ntfs.html

also
cat /proc/filesystems, that will show which filesystems this kernel supports

I will suggest you to get the most updated kernel RPM from RedHat and upgrade your kernel which is more easier and better, have a check here ftp://ftp.cs.uni-frankfurt.de/pub/linux/Mirror/ftp.redhat.com/updates/8.0/en/os/i386/ the kernel there 2.4.20 and sure will support NTFS file system.

So afer you get the kernel rpm just rpm -Uvh kernel-version.rpm which will upgrade your kernel right the way.

Hope this info can help :)
