        These two lines are invalid, and should be removed.
        Did you mean i should look for support from Oracle?
        No, I mean Oracle isn't going to support you, because you've installed non-Oracle software.

          Thanks, Would you please explain, just for my knowledge, why those 2 lines were wrong? I removed those 2 lines and again ran the same command. Now at least its not giving me alias error but still one error -

          modprobe fuse
          FATAL: Module fuse not found.

          Thanks,

            Because they are incomplete. Look at the other alias/option lines in your /etc/modprobe.conf. You need to specify a device and a driver and those lines just had the driver.
            modprobe fuse
            FATAL: Module fuse not found.
            So, the fuse package you installed didn't actually install the fuse kernel module. You installed this from RPMforge, so you may need to ask them (or Google) how to get this to work properly. :) I suspect you're missing the dkms and dkms-fuse packages, perhaps.

            Try installing them:
             # yum install dkms-fuse

              This was simply brilliant!! I did what you asked me to do and it worked just fine!! Now my system can detect the hard drive. Can't explain how thankful i am. You are awesome..

              You said i installed RPM-forge so ask them. Is there any other (Oracle) way of doing it? Please suggest. And anywhere i can study about these things?

              Thanks so much, this surely wouldn't have been possible without your help.

                Dude!
                For what it's worth.... the following works in OEL 4.9


                x86 (i686)
                # wget http://pkgs.repoforge.org/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el4.rf.i386.rpm
                # rpm -Uvh rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el4.rf.i386.rpm
                x86_64
                wget http://pkgs.repoforge.org/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el4.rf.x86_64.rpm
                rpm -Uvh rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el4.rf.x86_64.rpm
                Install the NTFS driver and related software:
                yum install fuse fuse-ntfs-3g dkms dkms-fuse 
                Find your NTFS volume
                blkid
                Mount a NTFS volume, e.g.
                mount.ntfs /dev/sdb1 /mnt
