    About the Linux-NTFS project:

    The goals of the Linux-NTFS project are to develop reliable and full feature access to NTFS by the Linux kernel driver, and by a user space filesystem (ntfsmount), and to provide a wide collection of NTFS utilities (ntfsprogs) and a developer's library (libntfs) for other GPLed programs. We have achieved already a lot, with high quality results.

    How to access NTFS from Linux
    You have these two options, choose one:
    1) Linux has an integrated kernel driver. It allows reading of files, and rewriting existing files. It does not support creation of new files or deletion of existing files. It works out of the box in most modern Linux distributions except Redhat/Fedora. For details on how to use it, see the "How to mount NTFS" wiki page. Click here if you are a Redhat/Fedora user.
    2) ntfsprogs includes an improved driver, ntfsmount, which provides the same functionality as the kernel driver. Additionally it also supports basic cases of directory, symlink, device and FIFO file creation, deletion and renaming. Note: That doesn't mean it always succeeds, it is still experimental and might just as well refuse to complete an operation in order to prevent corruption. See the ntfsmount page for more details.

    http://www.linux-ntfs.org/content/view/128/64/
    atm it supports fc and rh fully ;)
    to check out which rpm you need for ur distro, download the whichrpm script from this link http://data.linux-ntfs.org/rpm/whichrpm as usual chmod it to a+x (note u need to root so if logged in as a normal user use 'su -c <command>' ;) ) then ./<script-name-goes-here>. For a complete tutorial follow this link http://www.linux-ntfs.org/content/view/127/63/ hope this helps :D

    Mandrake (now called Mandriva) came with NTFS read/write support long back.
    In Ubuntu , it's easy provided you know the way to write to a NTFS partition.
    I haven't tried Fuse though.
