Centos - Mounting NTFS drives

I was brushing up on my CentOS 5.3 skills and needed access to an older NTFS formatted usb drive. I forgot that CentOS doesn't include NTFS-3g support natively, doh!
So here are the few simple commands needed to get it installed:
1. Open a terminal window
2. Su - (or Sudo -s)
3. yum install fuse fuse-ntfs-3g dkms dkms-fuse
4. mkdir /media/win
5. /sbin/fdisk -l <-- to find your drive
6. mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/win

Bam you are done!
