Mounting an ntfs disk

I would like to mount an ntfs disk on my
Linux Redhat 9.0 system, so that I can
access windows dlls.  It is on another partition
on my disk.  When I try to mount it, for example,

mount -t auto /dev/hda1 /winroot

I get the error message:

mount: fs type ntfs not supported by kernel

Do I need to do something special to build in kernel
support for ntfs?  I get the impression it is supported
based on the options described on the man page for
mount, so I'm not sure what is wrong.  Any help
would be appreciated.
