NTFS without recompiling kernel??


I dual boot on linux and WinXP. My WinXP partitions are NTFS. Is there any way I can access them without having to recompile the kernel?

yes. just search the sourceforge for file that contains ntfs and linux
It is a module that makes your Linux understand ntfs
after teaching the linux u have to mount and stuff
better explanation on the page of that file
Offcourse this doesn't work on all systems. what are you running? Red Hat 9, Debian, Fedora...?
earlier versions of Red Hat already have the ntfs support... you can't write to ntfs thou only read and copy from.

I'm running slackware 9.1. I found the NTFS page on sourceforge. Its http://sourceforge.net/projects/linux-ntfs/

It has NTFS drivers for kernel 2.4.24 onwards. I'm using kernel 2.4.22. Will it be safe to download these drivers?

the ntfs driver is already included with slackware. just mount your partition:

mount -t ntfs <partition> <directory>
