    Yes, you'll need to install ntfs-3g to have write access. I think you might be able to install it with URPMI if it's not on the Mandriva CD/DVD.

    Yes, as Oz said. But you'll also have to change the fstab entry for windows like:
    /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs-3g defaults,umask=0 0 0

    Of course, the location of your MS drive can differ.
    If you need a CD/DVD catalogizer, give a try to my program:
