Hello,

I'm using Live CD of Scientific Linux. It is not able to open a NTFS formatted drive.

I saw some posts here mentioning to do the following:

QUOTE
Enable EPEL:
CODE
su -c 'yum -y install epel-release'


Update o.s.:
CODE
su -c 'yum -y update'


Install ntfs-3g:
CODE
su -c 'yum -y install ntfs-3g'



However, I'm getting messages:
CODE
$ su -c 'yum -y install epel-release'
Loaded plugins: langpacks

Please help resolve this.
