Can't Mount NTFS Drive

I want to mount the old XP (well, Vista) partition in my system. If I try: mount -t ntfs /dev/md0 /xp I get this error: mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs' The solution on LinuxQuestions.org is to install the ntfs-3g package.

This works fine, but the next problem is that the drive is actually a RAID device. The solution, found on Fedora Forums, is to mount the partition found in /dev/mapper/, eg, mine was /dev/mapper/nvidia_ajffijefp1 - use the one ending in p and a number. My line in /etc/fstab looks like this:
/dev/mapper/nvidia_ajffijefp1 /xp ntfs-3g defaults 0 0
