    http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/fedora3.html
    Pick the one for your kernel version in the i686 section.
    You can check your version by typing "uname -r" as root.

    Install it( #rpm -Uvh XXX.rpm)

    Mount it like this:
    Code:
    mount -t ntfs -o nls=utf8 /dev/hdXX /mnt

    I'm not aware of any security risks(if that's what you mean).
    It only tells linux how to read an NT file system.

    its for feudora to see windows xp partition
    which is not what you want
    also, installing a NTFS into your kernel is ok but you should NEVER under any condideration give write access to the drive from linux

    ReiserFS seems to be used by alots
    ext3 as well...

    but I would think that fat32 should be your best option since u have a cross platform...
    of course your windows will be able to access this partition, but it could be your swap between Linux and windows... this is really convinient

    Ah...
    so that's what he means.
    Well, without that NTFS package he can't read it.
    As for not seeing it, just don't look for it.

    It doesn't need to be build in the kernel and it can't write on NTFS anyway.

    "fat32" is bad for Windows and even worse for Linux.

    hey gotta work with what you have

    I didnt say FAT32 was good

    and if im not mistaken the NTFS driver does give write access... even if its 0% stable

    Never install Linux on an FAT32 partition. I don't even see how it's possible, because FAT32 doesn't support symbollic/hard links or file persmissions.

    Just so everyone understands Fedora doesn't see my XP drive. XP sees my Fedora drive but of course shows no files. It has something to do with the new VolGroup paritioning system. Which I don't understand and can't find nothing written on it. Any suggestions? XP parition HTFS. Standard Fedora parition.

    Well from what I can understand in XP it sees the Fedora Drive... So go into the mmc in XP and use the Disk Management Snap-In and then simply remove the drive letter. This should fix the problem just don't remove the partition or anything like that. This should make XP say O look that Partition is no longer there O well. Yes Fedora Should still work. I havent had this issue personaly but this is how I have heard to fix this issue.
