How to mount NTFS

Is there any way to mount a NTFS filesystem of windowsXP.
I tried mount command (mount -t ntfs device mountpoint)but it say's NTFS is not supported by the kernel.
My system runs panini linux.

    The kernel has to have the NTFS filesystem enabled. This requires you to recompile the kernel with NTFS support.

    even if your kernel supports ntfs like mine does you may be able to mount it however it will probably be read only. Personally I have my Windows filesystems all fat32. What you may want to do is use something like partition magic to convert the filesystems to fat32 as you will have less trouble.

    If you insist on keeping it ntfs you may want to look into the captive-ntfs drivers:

    go to that link, read all about it, and compile then attempt to mount according to how they explain it. recompiling the kernel can be dangerous if you do not know how to do it. Procede with caution if you plan on doing so. I would try what I said first. Let me know what happens.
