I had a similar task with a FAT partition today. Check out http://forums.fedoraforum.org/forum/...ad.php?t=60430

BTW I think itnstead of stating the filesystem type you can simply state auto for the fstab entry

Sorry you are right. I believe that write support is not directly supported. I /believe/ you have to re-compile your kernel with the option tunred on. A search should reveal the answer.

Unless there has been improvements in NTFS support under linux you are taking your chances writing to an NTFS file system using linux.

Is this a dual boot system? If not and the NTFS file system is on another system then you want to look at samba to share that file system across the network.

If you really do want to read and write a windows file system then you should look at using a FAT32 file system for that.

yeah I am dual booting FC4 and XP and using a shared FAT partition. Both OSs have read/write access to it and it works nicely.

i tought that in linux there will be no problem ?
i saw in fdisk there is many type of NTFS can linux do..!!!
i need to solution....

but the sillllliiii solution i found:

.2 Can the Driver write to an NTFS volume, too?

Not really, but if you only need to copy files from Linux to Windows on a dual-boot machine, see "How to write to NTFS" below for a possible way to work around the lack of write support. For write support in Linux, read on.
...http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/info/ntfs.html#3.2
so i have to use windows driver.....I AM TRYING TO GETOF FROM WINDOWSSSS

Much of your last message was not clear.

There are ways to build a kernel that will allow you to write to an NTFS file system. Please read all the notes on doing that. It is not recommended and could cause problems with the NTFS file system.

If you want to setup a file system that can be used in both windows and linux modes it is recommended that that file system type be FAT32. There is good support for that in linux.

Building a kernel to allow NTFS write support is not a trivial task and probably going to be very frustrating to someone that is new to linux.

If you go that route please make sure you have backups of all data on the NTFS file system. You may wipe that file system unintentionally.
