NTFS support is known to be poor under Linux.  This is because NTFS is Microsoft proprietary, and they've elected not to publish specs or any documentation on it.  There is a driver for NTFS that was written by a dedicated group by reverse-engineering NTFS (see http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/ for more details).

The net here is that most current distros will allow NTFS volumes to be mounted read-only.  This is probably something you can do by modifying /etc/fstab and specifying the "ro" option for the NTFS volumes.

Write support to NTFS is currently very experimental, and is in no way guaranteed to leave your NTFS volume in a working state.  I have seen an option in the 2.6.12 kernel to enable NTFS write support, but I wouldn't by any means trust it...

If you just want to read and copy files from your XP partition its only a matter of modifying
/etc/fstab
First make a mount point as su   mkdir /winxp

then modify /etc/fstab as follows

/dev/hda1     /winxp      ntfs       noauto,umask=022,users  0  0

save this file and mount with  mount /winxp.  You will have to change hda1 to your win xp partition.


If you want to write files to XP then download and install captive:

 That's because you don't have the NTFS driver installed.

Get the RPM for FC3 from here:
http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/downloads.html

Make sure you download the RPM that matches your kernel version - it can be found out by using the command : uname -r

Install it by running the following command as root:
rpm -ivh <the rpm filename that you downloaded>

Then try to mount it.
It should work fine. wink.gif

Following up the_unforgiven's post, you can also see linux-ntfs' installation instructions page for some more details at:
http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/inst...structions.html

However, note that this module will still only really allow read-only access to NTFS drives, so you should add the "ro" option to the 4th column of your /etc/fstab if you go this route.  I don't believe this module will allow read-write access, which is the default, and which your current /etc/fstab attempts.  To the extent write access is supported, it's still very much "use at your own risk."

If you feel you must have write access, see the link to captive in Hal8000's posts, but (at least the last time I checked) captive only runs under wine, so it's not native linux mounting of the disk...

 AFAIK, the module is by default compiled to be RO - it doesn't support writing by default - unless you custom-compile the kernel with NTFS write support.

Here is what my module outputs in syslog when I insert it:

NTFS driver v1.1.22 [Flags: R/O MODULE]


I'm running RH 7.3 (kernel version 2.4.18-3)
