The default CentOS kernel doesn't support NTFS.  You need to install the 
kernel from the CentOSPlus repository.  From 

This is a kernel that has many of the options and modules turned on which
are turned off by default in the upstream providers kernels.  A list of
some of the items that this Kernel includes are:

File Systems:
NTFS (read and write)
XFS (read and write)
JFS (read and write)
ReiserFS (read and write)
UFS {BSD default FS} (read only)
BeOS FS (read only)
AFS (read only)

Hardware Modules:
All Firewire
Video4 Linux and all Video, Audio and Radio modules

IPX, DECNET, netware file mount support, ability to write to a Windows
Dynamic Partition.  There are other items as well.  See this link for
the actual config files used to build the latest unsupported kernel:
