255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1               1       19457   156288321   42  SFS


this is what i can see


[root@www ~]# mount /dev/sda1 /home/adam/usb -t ntfs -r

#1 -> Go to this link.  linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/redhat9.html" target="_blank" onclick="return openNew(this.href);">http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/redhat9.html
#2 -> Download the rpm that matches your kernel version (check with uname -r)
#3 -> in a shell, type:   rpm -Uvh kernel-ntfs*.rpm
#4 -> if you have corrected the /etc/fstab entry as stated below

dev/sda1        /home/adam/usb   ntfs      ro,auto,exec,user,umask=002 0 0
