how to write on ntfs partition in openSUSE 10.3


I installed openSUSE 10.3 then /etc/fstab was like this
/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_ST380215A_9RXB5YER-part4 / ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 1
/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_ST380215A_9RXB5YER-part1 /windows/C ntfs-3g users,gid=users,fmask=133,dmask=022,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0
/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_ST380215A_9RXB5YER-part5 /windows/D ntfs-3g users,gid=users,fmask=133,dmask=022,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0
/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_ST380215A_9RXB5YER-part6 /windows/E ntfs-3g users,gid=users,fmask=133,dmask=022,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0
/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_ST380215A_9RXB5YER-part7 /windows/F ntfs-3g users,gid=users,fmask=133,dmask=022,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0
/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_ST380215A_9RXB5YER-part3 swap swap defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
debugfs /sys/kernel/debug debugfs noauto 0 0
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
I added "defaults 0 0" after ntfs-3g in C,D,E & F then window patition became modifiable.
QUESTION)Can anybody show /etc/fstab file of openSUSE 11 way to modify file & folder on ntfs partition.
QUESTION)Is their any other alternative to make ntfs partition editable in openSUSE 10.3.

Try to remount the device in read/write mode, by using 'mount' with the '-remount rw' option (see man page for details). On Linux it seems to be some kind of tradition not to mess with NTFS drives, so commonly these are mounted in read-only mode. I'm not sure if it solves your problem, but it's worth a try.
