I think the command is convert.

convert C:  /fs:ntfs
C: is the drive you want to convert to ntfs.

Since this is a linux group......The default kernel with RH9 can't  
read/write to an ntfs drive.   If you want to add the kernel module,  
check this site http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/.  This may not be  
a problem for you.
