How to mount NTFS fileson Centos 6.5

Today, I am trying to mount NTFS files for the Centos 6.5 system and here is the useful tool for those  who are newbies...
---------------------------------------------------------------
P.S. credit ....http://www.tuxera.com/community/ntfs-3g-download/

1)

Download

The latest stable version is ntfs-3g_ntfsprogs-2014.2.15, released on February 23, 2014.

2) 

Installation

Linux: Most distributions include and use NTFS-3G by default. Please use that one unless it’s an old version. If you wish to install NTFS-3G from the source code then make sure you have installed the basic development tools (gcc compiler, libc-dev libraries). Then type:
./configure
make
make install # or 'sudo make install' if you aren't root

Non-Linux: Please see the OS specific installation and source packages above.

3)

Usage

If there was no error during installation then the NTFS volume can be mounted in read-write mode for everybody as follows. Unmount the volume if it had already been mounted, replace /dev/sda1 and /mnt/windows, if needed.
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/windows
Please see the NTFS-3G Manual for more options and examples.
You can also make NTFS to be mounted during boot by adding the following line to the end of the /etc/fstab file:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/windows ntfs-3g defaults 0 0

AIPS troubleshooting with Xterm (Centos ver.6)

I am using Centos 6.0 and just updated all the system and trying to install AIPS. I found the problem ..... /home/aips/31DEC14/SYSTEM/UNIX/XASERVERS &.....xterm command not found......

It means you have to install XTERM for  your operating system and then AIPS will work normally.
