The default redhat 6.0 kernel does not include support for nt partitions
(ntfs drives), so if you want to access that partition you'll have to
recompile your kernel with the NTFS read only support built in.
This is in the Filesystems section of the kernel config, if using a menu,
otherwise it's the CONFIG_NTFS_FS: option.
Hope this helps,
PS I presume its a ntfs partition, you've got and not a hpfs one. My ntfs
drive gets reported as HPFS/NTFS on my dual boot machine.
