    Partition ntfs


    Have discovered that RH9 doesn't come with the ability to read ntfs enables, requiring a kernel reconfigure I suppose. Easy way to access ntfs from RH seems to me to partition perhaps 10gigs of me hda XP hd and reformat as fat32 so I can 'share'.

    Anyone know an easy way to partition an ntfs disk with existing data?

    XP Home btw.

    Any other ideas as to how to 'share' ?

    Ta.

    PMagic would be good but don't do kazaa. Perhaps time for ebay or summat.

    Alternatives i would consider:

    1) Purchase a small second HD and format as FAT32
    2) Recompile the Kernel with NTFS support (proberly not that hard)

    Already got 2 hds and am beginning to think that RH is not the distro for me so wouldn't want to get involved in that at the moment.

    That was kazza lite right ? For the rest of you out there, the full version of kazza was and is filled with all sorts of junk that you don't want. i.e. virus's, less true features- just eye candy, slower..... Not every copy is filled with the same junk so most kazza users suggest you stay away from the full version of kazza, at least this user does.

    My 2 cents,

    I have the latest version of partition magic equipped with boot magic and some other tools. I used it to dual boot. If anyone wants it i can turn my ftp server on but im on dialup soo it might be slow.
