Last I checked you couldn't write to ntfs. I mean you couldn't write any
files to ntfs where the file didn't already exist on the partition and your
changes didn't change the file size of the file. uhmm.. ie. can't write.
Has that changed recently?
I either installed the ext2/3 or reiserfs driver on windows, or had windows
install on fat32 partitions.
I'm currently running windows free, so I'm a bit rusty on this, but I believe
there was a driver for reiser that let you load/mount/whatever the partition
as a drive letter natively in windows. so you're E: drive became my windows
stuff and I could read/write stuff to reiser under both windows and linux. I
forget the name of the program, If I can track it down, I'll mail the list.
