Mounting Windows NTFS partition under Fedora 7

I have a dual boot Fedora 7 + Windows 2000 Pro

When I tried mounting the NTFS Partition

# mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/win
mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs'

I got the above message.

Then this is what I did to Mount windows NTFS partition
Under Fedora Release 7(Moonshine):

Install the below packages from Fedora core 7 DVD

rpm -ivh fuse-2.6.5-1.fc7.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh fuse-libs-2.6.5-1.fc7.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh ntfs-3g-1.516-1.fc7.i386.rpm

[root@linuxbox tmp]# fdisk -lu

Disk /dev/sda: 40.0 GB, 40007761920 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 4864 cylinders,
total 78140160 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System

/dev/sda3 51408000 78140159 13366080 8e Linux LVM

My Windows NTFS partition is /dev/sda1

I create a directory
#mkdir /mnt/win_c/

Then Mount it:
[root@linuxbox tmp]# mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/win_c/

[root@linuxbox win_c]# pwd

[root@linuxbox win_c]# ls
