This message means that you don't have NTFS support compiled into the kernal. 
 It's really not too hard to recompile the kernel to include this support.  
Just read the how-to and it will fully explain what to do.

What do you mean "around this".  All you want to do is copy the stuff from 
your NT partition into your Linux partition?  The fastest way to do with 
without recompiling the kernel would have to be BeOS.  Download the new free 
release of BeOS from http://www.be.com/products/freebeos    It installs onto 
a FAT, FAT32, NTFS, and now Linux partition.  It needs a little over 500MB of 
room to do this.  When done, it will create a boot floppy.  All you have to 
do is boot into BeOS.  At this point, all your hardware should be detected 
w/out a problem.  When you get a desktop, just right click on the icon 
farthest to the left, then select mount, then mount both our NTFS partition 
and your Linux partition.  Copying is the same as it is in windows.  Or if 
you prefer your CLI interface, open terminal and you have a BASH shell with 
all your *nix commands.  

Hope that helps you out some.  If you need any help on BeOS, you can e-mail 
me at mcdiorio@buffalo.edu
