My setup is
a laptop from Packard bell, cpu : Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU T6600 @ 2.20GHz × 2
SL 7 geinstalleerd.
Gnome Version 3.14.2

The harddisk has 2 part(itions

That's right, of course. http://th166.photobucket.com/albums/u117/rdshear/Smiley%20Faces/th_smiley-face-thumbs-up.gif
... Logical (but important) add: you need to have the EPEL Repo installed (and enabled) to use the
CODE
yum install ntfs-3g

command. smile.gif
