    Linux does indeed recognise NTFS partitions. I think Mandrake's the best for that sort of thing. With Slack 10 it recognises them but I think it can cause some problems depending on what settings you choose at installation.

    Yes, Linux can definately read NTFS. I am listening to MP3s from my NTFS partition as I write this, my problem is that I have to be logged in as root to do so. There is supposed to be write support for NTFS in the latest Linux kernel, but it is supposed to be terribly dangerous.
    Use a umask so any user has read access, but not write.
