Well NTFS is supported with 2. 6 kernels & i hope it has it chk via

uname -a

Well in such cases ,the ntfs support was limited before but now the patches are improved & ntfs is well supported,there are 2 ways to do it :

1. you get a package in the form of rpm or tarred package & install it which will make the ext file system compatible for ntfs.

2. you can download the patch & patch the linux kernel & then do a kernel compilation & after reboot you can mount the ntfs as fat on ur linux OS.

3. if you have a flash drive then also its supported ...
    you can check the messages in /var/log/messages & mount appropriate device as for example:
             mount /dev/sda1 /mnt  

           where sda1 is shown as usb device in messages.

So you can try the above & tell me if you still face any problem...call me  at +919916326440
