    Reading files on NTFS partition...


    I recently downloaded KNOPPIX and SuSE 9.0 Live Eval. (They both boot and run off of CD.)

    Knoppix read my NTFS files just fine (with a warning that writing to NTFS was not supported). Okay, I can live with that.

    BUT... SuSE 9.0 Live Eval displays a message that Linux does not support NTFS file systems. Hmmm.... Knoppix version of Linux sure did.

    What gives?

    Thanks in advance!

    the ability to read (NOT write) a NTFS partition is enabled in the kernel. Not all kernels have this enabled.

    just to bore you with excess information, now. You can enable the NTFS read on any kernel by re-compiiling it with that option set on.
