    Welcome to the forums!

    You can install ntfs-3g if it's not already installed:

    Are you accessing the NFS files as root? You should avoid that if possible, but if you must, then NFS-Root-Client Mini-HOWTO may help you.

    I believe it is on the DVD. If you installed from the CD it may only be available by download.

    It looks like it's installed by default under OpenSUSE 11, so you can check this HowTo for enabling it:
