Yes, but you need a driver to do it. Google NTFSDOS to find one.

Read the manual for whatever DOS based utility you decide to use.  Some may require loading in the config.sys file, others may be executable programs.

If you are in need of accessing a partition for a failed system, I suggest using the Ultimate Boot CD for Windows or Windows PE which is now free as part of the Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK).
