Re: want to use NTFS Drive

Read is no problem, by default the kernel has a working ntfs driver for reading NTFS drives.

However when writing...
The most compatible possibility to work read/write with NTFS drives is to use either ntfs-3g or the Captive driver (which uses an original ntfs dll from a Windows system, which also requires a valid Windows license and such.. it's a pretty dirty emulation hack, I'd go for ntfs-3g)

A pretty good howto for ntfs-3g is here:
http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_NTFS_write_with_ntfs-3g

Installation procedures might differ (gentoo is source-compilation) but the configuration & working should be the same.
Ntfs-3g itself can be found here: http://ntfs-3g.org
