Summary
By default Red Hat linux is not mounting NTFS drives, for example usb sticks formated on Windows 7 (ntfs format). You need additional packages to install in order to read/write the NTFS drive. The package needed for RedHat 5.5 64bit are:
fuse & ntfs-3g

1. Install $>rpm -i fuse-2.6.3-1.el3.rf.x86_64.rpm
2. Install $>rpm -i fuse-ntfs-3g-1.1120-1.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm
3. Mount the device in read/write mode:
$>mkdir /mnt/ntfs
$>fdisk -l
$mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /mnt/ntfs/ -o force

4. To unmount the filesystem:
$umount /dev/sdc1
