NTFS Partition in Fedora Core

Fedora Core (FC) distribution of Linux doesn't support NTFS drives by default. Last week i was in a desperate condition to mount NTFS drives in to FC.

To solve this problem i installed ntfs-3g tool with yum. Then mounted the drive by adding the command in to /etc/fstab.

If you don't want to add anything into /etc/fstab then it can be done manually by executing

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 path_to_folder_where_to_mount -o force

this command should be executed as root.

ntfs-3g is available in rpm format also.

PS: Installation of ntfs-3g would connect to internet. at console proxy settings won't work. to handle this problem you have to export proxy settings with proper value and port.
ex. export http_proxy 'xxx.xx.xx.xx:xxxx'
