ntfs write and permission
I want to share user file between windows and linux. Is it a good idea to use an NTFS partition for /home? I suppose this question really breaks into many part, such as how mature is write support for NTFS (as of now, compiled in my 2.6.10) and does chmod works in NTFS? My memory with a FAT32 partition is that, chmod / chown doesn't seems to do much between remounts (i.e. owner ship setting is lost after remount)
I am currently mounting with the following line:
/dev/hda9 /home_test noauto,noatime,rw,nls=utf8,umask=000 0 0
This seems to work okay as far as I know, but being a place for semi-important (personal, not system important) data, I really want to know some expert opinion.
