how to mount NTFS volumes


Hi i am running woody with kernel 2.6.x. i would like to know how can i mount NTFS volumes, as i am running into some troubles now. at the moment as it is root and user, have read-only access. i would like to make them have write access as well. i know it is dangerous, but i would like to make it happen. here is what the /etc/fstab looks like:
/dev/hda1 /mnt/winxp ntfs ro,users,noauto 0 0

even when i change ro to rw, still i can not have write access. any ideas?

Perhaps the compiled kernel does not have write support. Best bet truely is to get a bootable distro cd that had ntfs write support. Trinity has it, and i think so does PHLAK. Look around. I just cant warn you enough about how dangerous it can be. back up everything into linux before you write.

due to programmers advice, write function in linux ntfs support is not stable enough, it may cause data loss. so be careful.
