Centos tracks the upstream kernel very closely, and since RHEL doesn't
supply NTFS support in the default kernel, neither do we. However
there is a kernel-unsupported package in the centosplus repository
that has ntfs support built into it. You should use that if you need
ntfs support

yum --enablerepo centosplus install kernel (or kernel-smp, whichever you need)
