Not really, but some may HAVE to use NTFS. :-P

For CentOS5 - ntfs-3g and dep fuse build/install from Fedora Extras
SRPMS ntfs-3g-1.0-1.fc7.src.rpm and fuse-2.6.3-2.fc6.src.rpm

However, when an attempt is made to mount one gets:
FATAL: Module fuse not found.

My guess is the fuse module is not in the standard kernel.  Perhaps when
we see C5 centosplus?

For CentOS4 seems ntfs-3g needs fuse which needs kernel >= 2.6.14 when
using the above SRPMS.  Can get fuse RPMS and kmdl from ATrpms testing
repo if you're feeling brave.  RPMforge has a dkms-fuse also.  Would
still need to build ntfs-3g unless someone has one I missed.

Or use knoppix or another live distro that has ntfs-3g.
