I have an external Hard Drive Formatted under Windows XP, Can I manage this drive in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
Right now the drive is invisible to Ubuntu. How can I use such a drive without reformatting it?

Yes sure. It should be installed by default. Assuming there is something wrong just try to install
sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g ntfs-config gksudo ntfs-config`
You should see the external drive in File Explorer (called
nautilus) at the left side if you open you Computer Icon or Home Folder
