hi,
which distro are u using ???
on some you can get read access to NTFS ( no write option ).
and in others you will have to compile your kernel in order to access the NTFS.

#mkdir /mnt/windows ( make a directory)
#mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows -t ntfs (mount the ntfs partition there)

a small tutorial on mounting drives in linux.

FC doesn't have NTFS support out of the box, you need a third party module - http://www.linux-ntfs.org/

Should be able to follow their FC steps and get it sorted, as far as i know it's only able to (safe to) red the files, most people create FAT32 partitions for sharing data between 2 OS' as it's been around longer and support for read/write is quite good

For the long term, getting your data onto a FAT32 partition is definitely the way to go.
I take it a step farther--put data on a completley separate physical drive.

Yeah unfortunatly files are getting bigger i keep finding myself dealing with 4+ GB files, and FAT32's max single file size is 4GB, and compressing takes AGES :P
