Hi Yorath,

RHEL -5 's default system is ext3, As far I know it can support more then hundred file systems to perform. It depends on its kernel version. FAT, FAT16, FAT32, ext, ext2, ext3, ReiserFS, Reiser4, NFS, ISO9660, UDF, XFS, and JFS, NTFS, AFS, QNX6, Coherent, HFS, HFS+, RAMFS, Minix, HPFS, BFS, XIAFS, and UFS and many more. RHEL -5 dose not support NTFS file system.

Dear,

ext3 (Third Extended File System ) is commonly used by the Linux kernel. ext3 is the default file system of Linux. Linux support so many file system, such as ext, ext2, ext3, reiserfs, affs, hpfs, iso9660, minix, msdos, vfat, NFS, umsdos etc.

To enable NTFS support in RHEL – 5 you need to do a few things. First of all enable the EPEL repo. Then install the package ntfs-3g using yum.

Thank you.
