Non-Compete Agreement

I was offered a job with a six months Non-Compete Agreement as part of the contract. The compensation during the non-compete period wasn't mentioned. I wonder if it's reasonable for me to ask prosperctive employer to fully compensate me during the period (i.e. six month salary)?
Its not unheard of, but i've only seen this really happen with very senior positions, partnerships etc. Obviously, anything that makes you harder and/or more expensive to employ while not offering an employer a return on their investment, detract from your marketability (imho).
