To handle NTFS partitions in GNU/Linux you should install the package ntfs-3g
Note: From April 2011 the ntfs-3g and ntfsprogs projects joined forces so now everything is in a single suite: ntfs-3g.
Most likely your distribution may already have installed the suite ntfs-3g else you can do it by exec
$ sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g
# yum install ntfs-3g
