    Robin,

    The PartedMagic CD will mount NTFS partitions read/write using the ntfs-3g driver ... will that do what you need?

    I agree with Jonathan183. You should use PartedMagic LiveCD or GParted LiveCD. ntfs-3g package is available in both LiveCDs.
    You can use Ubuntu LiveCD too. However, you have to install ntfs-3g package in it. Thats pretty easy.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
