More than likely you'll have to reformat the drive.  The USB drive that I
connected to my FedoraCore 6 system would not mount, because for some strange
reason, FC6 does not support NTFS (Windblows).  Doing so means that I can
longer attach it to W2K, or later.

If there is a secret as to how to get USB NTFS drives to mount, I'll pull
the data off and get Windblows to reformat it.
