Is it possible to mount an NTFS-based USB removable hard drive under Linux? I need to be able to plug in the hard drive and have Linux detects and uses it automatically, pretty much like what Windows does. I have no knowledge on Linux, just getting some information to see is it even feasible. Thanks.

linux-ntfs is a now well-established driver, and as such most Linux distributions come with the driver already integrated

And if you've done a default install, your GNOME / KDE desktop will automatically detect and open your NTFS-USB hard disk for you.

If you do not have a "desktop" and only a command line then you will have to do it the manual way since it is your desktop software "GNOME or KDE" that has the automation built in.
