check if you have ntfs-3g and ntfsprogs installed you can do that with

sudo rpm -qa ntfs*

if not install them

sudo dnf install ntfsprogs ntfs-3g

after that create folder like

sudo mkdir /mnt/myntfs

sudo mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/myntfs

That should work.

Hope this help

it worked, thank you now I have another two questions, I hope I'm not braking any rules... 1. how do I mount my files partition on boot? 2. how do I change the user login screen from Fedora's to KDE's?

Thanks in advanced!

The boot partition should not be used for anything else but if you want to mount something there you need to create a folder to put your partition, then issue command like the mount and change /mnt/mynfs for your folder /boot/myntfs for instance but should not recommend to do that. You can change the user login on KDE instaing GDM which is the one that gnome use but it can handle the two of them.
