I use "Captive-NTFS" (as suggested above) a lot for network traffic on my servers which were originally windows 2000 server
I have had no problems with it at all, it works flawlessly between systems as IN MY PERSONAL experiences.
It works great, but to get it to work properly without issues...
You will have to get ahold of "windows xp service pack 1" just the service pack, not the whole windows xp. the ntfs system files contained in that service pack are what was suggested in the help files of the distribution i used.
Btw, I am running captive on redhat 7.3, rh 9.0, fedora 1
all intel based machines, p3, p4, athlon slot A.
