I take it you are trying to mount and write to the drives with files downloaded through utorrent, am I correct?

I would first recommend using one of the native linux clients. ktorrent is a fine program, the official bit torrent client is available for linux, azureus is available, plus about 10-20 more clients. (My fav. is ktorrent)

Secondly, most modern distros can read and write ntfs just fine--but it should come with warning. sometimes they can mess it up (though mine never have)

My best suggestion is to make a FAT32 FS on a partition you can share between windows and linux, you'll be much happier this way, i promise.

However, if you really want to work with NTFS, post your mount options for the NTFS partition.

Sorry I missed your reply.

If you are using Ubuntu, do:

# apt-get install ktorrent

If you are using a yum based distro, do:

# yum install ktorrent


I think mandrake is:

urpmi -i ktorrent

Hope that helps!
