Problem to mount ntfs partition when installing Fedora 18

When I am doing manual partitioning during the installation, I can mount the "/" and "/ home" partition smoothly. The problem is when I try to mount an ntfs partition (I use dual boot), which I can not mount because the box where you must enter the mount point of the partition is disabled. I appreciate any input.

Remember that u cant have more than 4 primary partitions.

I'm not sure, but it's possible that anaconda in this version does not support ntfs mounts (I haven't checked). This isn't much of an issue. If you're looking to access your data in the ntfs partition, you can always set up to automount on boot once you have your system installed and set up. In gnome3, you can use the disks utility to do this.
