Default Access NTFS drive with nForce RAID

Hello,

I was using Windows XP and switched to Ubuntu Linux 5.10 x64.

Everything is working fine (nVidia graphic and nForce drivers are installed), except that I am not able to access my data hard drive (160 GB S-ATA) formatted in NTFS. fdisk is displaying a SFS file system format ? Secure File System ?

I think that it may be related to nForce RAID driver that was installed on my old XP installation where, at a time, I played with RAID configs. However, the drive was not in a RAID configuration.

To test, I installed XP aside Linux and I needed to install nForce drivers to see that hard disk.

Now how can I access data under Linux?
