Linux kernel can mount NTFS partitions provided that the appropriate 
module (ntfs.o) is available. If the module is available, you can mount 
NTFS partition with the command
mount -t ntfs <partition> <directory_where_is_should_be_mounted>

If the module is not available (as far as I can remember, it is not 
included with compiled kernel in FC3), you should obtain package 
'kernel-sources', recompile and install the kernel with NTFS support
