I have not installed the most recent kernel for FC2, so possibly it has
changed, but the kernel sources RPM I have includes NTFS support. The
kernel builds done by the FC team have it turned off, but the driver is
there. All you have to do is build a new kernel after setting the proper
option. If you use 'make menuconfig', you will find it under File
systems --> DOS/FAT/NT Filesystems --> NTFS file system support. If you
set that to 'Y' or 'M', then you will see two additional options.
