Options in fstab or mount command is the only place where you can change the permissions of NTFS filesystems. NTFS filesystems are mounted read-only by default.

     There are 2 kernel modules that provide ntfs support . The first one
is read-only , if you select then an ntfs partition will be mounted
read-only not by default but  because it is the only way to do it .
The second one is the one that provides some limited writing capabilities ,
now if you use that one then you would have to specify "ro" during the
mount proccess since writing is possible .
Now Redhat for as long as i can remember never shipped a linux version with ntfs filesystem support , so if you wanted filesystem support you would have to recompile the kernel and add it . At which point ( recompiling of kernel) you would have to choose which kernel module you wanted ( there is help available there ) .
Personally i stopped using the kernels provided by Redhat since they lacked
ntfs filesystem support ( i dual boot and need ntfs filesystem support ) so i just use the kernels provided by kernel.org which btw have the read-only module preselected , in which case YES the ntfs partition will be mounted read-only by
default .


Kind Regards,
