/dev/sda1               1       19457   156288321   42  SFS


this is what i can see


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

#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
