For CentOS-6 the EPEL repository is carrying later NTFS packages. EPEL is also usable for CentOS-5. To install, after enabling the repo per the Repositories page:
# yum install ntfs-3g
or if you prefer to leave EPEL disabled by default
# yum --enablerepo epel install ntfs-3g
You may also want to
yum install ntfsprogs ntfsprogs-gnomevfs
Suppose your ntfs filesystem is /dev/sda1 and you are going to mount it on /mymnt/win, do the following.
First, create a mount point.
# mkdir /mymnt/win
Next, edit /etc/fstab as follows. To mount read-only:
# /dev/sda1 /mymnt/win ntfs-3g ro,umask=0222,defaults 0 0
To mount read-write:
# /dev/sda1 /mymnt/win ntfs-3g rw,umask=0000,defaults 0 0
You can now mount it by running:
# mount /mymnt/win
