    Any distro can support NTFS. You just have to compile the option in your kernel or as a module to use it. NTFS reading is perfectly functional, while writing to an NTFS partition is still experimental.

    Sarumont has a excellant point. You can read after modification to the kernal (not for new users, unless your willing to kill your system if not successful) but not write at this time. In the future it may change.
