if you're intrested in a multimedia distro, i'd suggest ubuntu studio...especially if you will be recording music. It has a selectable kernel specifically made for "low latency" for music recording. ...

I've used Knoppix with read/write access to NTFS volumes, but the results of writing are unpredictable. NTFS is to the best of my knowledge, propietary and therefore not fully documented by Microsoft to the rest of us. Additionally, each new release of Windows and service pack releases upgrades NTFS which modifies the file system with each upgrade. Until Microsoft releases their code (ha ha) support in other OS's will be limited.
I've used the Knoppix bootable CDs to recover files from unbootable Windows machines (by copying to USB thumb drives) and for copying the security SAM database for password cracking when the administrator passwords were lost.

ArtistX - I was brave to give it a try and installed
I just registered to this forum and noticed the conversation about ArtistX.
I am using Ubuntu as a dual boot (and at times triple boot) for the last three years.
ArtistX is a 100% Ubuntu based system and I think it is also serviced by the Ubuntu repositories.
Unfortunately there are two problems:
- It is based on Ubuntu 8.10 which seams to have serious problems with sound. ArtistX is heavily dependent on sound, thus it may take a long time to sort this problem. For example I took the courage to install it in one computer that I had Ubuntu Studio (7.04 based), XP Home and Ubuntu 9.10. I replaced the Ubuntu studio. Every thing seams to work fine except the sound. This is not a computer problems because both XP home and 9.10 play sound with no problems.
- I tried to post my problem at the ArtistX website, but the Forum basically does not exist. I was going to suggest that the next version should be based on at least Ubuntu 9.04 if not 9.10. In fact when I am doing updates there is always a suggestion at the top to start the automatic update to 9.04. I did not take this route since the desktop arrangement (panels ect ) is different than the usual Ubuntu (in fact they are nicer). I am going to keep it, at least for a while.
I think ArtistX has a future and at the very least it can show you the capabilities of Linux in the multimedia section, which now is controlled by windows. I think there is light down the path and if you have room in your hard disk do not hesitate to give it a try.
If you are new to the dual or more boot do some serious reading before you embark to this adventure
