Hello Mohit,  Google for the following rpm;


The above is for the stock kernel as comes with FC3.  If you have 
upgraded your kernel you will need to get the rpm for your kernel. You 
should find it on the same site as the above.

Install it with the following command;

rpm -ivh <name of rpm as above> and you will be able to access your ntfs 
win xp partition. After I installed the above rpm the windows ntfs 
partition is mounted automatically. It may not necessarily mount 
automatically on your system. Check your /etc/fstab file and your /mnt 
dir for a mount point.

Good luck.


Kind regards,
