Smile Best way to edit XP ntfs files with the ntfs-3g, from Linux


From a Linux what is the best way to be able to edit, create, or copy and paste Windows XP files and folders, (with the ntfs-3g) in a multiple boot system ? I have Ubuntu 8.04, and open SUSE 11, and Fedora 9 with XP media center edition. So is it only by in a terminal as root user, to be able to have access rights to do this? For example to edit a plain text file such as the boot.ini file or a simple note pad file. I did try this in SUSE using the kdesu command and full file path, but got the; "Access Denied" error message. My XP partition does auto-mount in all my Linux, so it is listed in the; /etc/fstab files. Thanks.
