Default Linux & NTFS - The correct way ?

I have some NTFS partitions.
I usually add NTFS support by recompiling the kernel. Is there any other way to add NTFS support without recompiling the kernel. Also are the following steps to add NTFS support correct ?

{
<New Linux Redhat 8 Installation done>

usr/src/2.4.18-3 $ make xconfig
< Enable NTFS support, save & exit >
usr/src/2.4.18-3 $ make dep
usr/src/2.4.18-3 $ make bzImage
usr/src/2.4.18-3 $ make modules
usr/src/2.4.18-3 $ make modules_install

<Add entry in grub.conf for bzImage>

}


These are the only steps that I do.

Are there any more steps needed ? (Like backing up some files, copying some directories/files etc. )

I usually proceed by inserting the ntfs module into the kernel, either via "insmod" or adding the appropriate line in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules (so that the system takes it into account at boot time).

Slackware does this, though I have no idea if your distribution uses the same files. But insmod should definitely work (provided, of course, you've got the right module available).

Im not sure how much this might be of use to you, but I found this article about dual booting with Linux and Win 2k/XP. It tells of having Linux as the first OS and then dual booting with XP.

http://users.wpi.edu/~naveen/project...otlin2000.html

The appendium to this was from a reader who was putting XP on a Linux box that had Red Hat 7.x.

well i dont see why you would need it in rc.modules, most modner kernels have a auto load , so if he were to moutn a ntfs drive it would load the module for them, I know my system does that , oh and only add the option for read, because it is unsafe to wright to a ntfs parition form linux atm.

Here's the tutorial I used to enable NTFS without recompiling the kernel (support is included with Redhat, you just have to compile the module):

I dunno if this is what you are looking for, but the wasy way out was to just install Mandrake 9...it set it up at 1st boot for me, all I had to do was make make a new mount on my desktop!
