    It is possible but writing is in an experimental stage.

    see: http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/

    It's pretty easy to include read support in your RH80 distro.

    You can enable write support on an NTFS partition in any distribution. However you will end up with a destoyed NTFS filesystem. Write support IS NOT safe. If you need write support use an FAT32 partition for shared data.

    Try adding the "iocharset=name" option to your mount options. Replace name with the charset.
