Mount NTFS partition


Hi

Just FYI: Whatever NTFS support you might get going probably won't be able to write to any partitions very reliably. If possible, try FAT32; practically the only difference is that it doesn't support encryption or compression.

You do not have NTFS support in your kernel. What distro are you using?
