    You can write to ntfs, but it is not reconmended at all, since there is a high chance of you loosing your data on the ntfss drive.

    You may want to add ntfs filesystem suport to your kernel (this should get captive-ntfs) running. You can do this by
    Code:
    su
    [rootpass]
    cd /usr/src/linux
    make menuconfig
    and then going to the section about filesystems, and then selecting the ntfs filesystem. Then
    Code:
    make && make modules_install
    cp -f arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/kernel-(version)
    cp -f System.map /boot/System.map-(version)
     cp -f .config /boot/config-(version)
    and then add it to your /boot/grub/grub.conf or your /etc/lilo.conf (whichever you use) and then reboot the computer.

    Normally you can import the needed system files from your windows install. CaptiveNTFS should ask you for that the first time you start it up.
