Using NTFS in an FTP server


Yes, another post about NTFS. I already know that the linux ntfs drivers are effectively read-only, but I still gotta try:
I'm intending to set up a multi-hd fileserver/webserver/ftpserver with a small console-only linux installation. One of my major harddrives is already NTFS (From a previous win2k ftp server) with a whole bunch of shit on it. I would install samba so I can organize the file system from whatever workstation on the network. Soo...
1) Must I change the file system of that HD to use it?
1a) if so, what does that change involve? I am not familiar yet with linux filesystems (as I am familiar with fat32 and ntfs), so: can I still use spaces in filenames? I know, it's anal, but it's still important to me.

And as a side-question: Is there any windows software that can administer users and so on from a client computer? I mean, obviously ssh and so on, but I'm talking GUI

Thanks in advance for everything!!

you can create a linux filesystem ext3 on a free partition. With ntfs support in the kernel you can mount the ntfs partition and copy all the files over to the linux partition. Then you can just reformat the ntfs partition to linux ext3 if you want.

Thanks! This is mostly likely what I will do, but I wonder: does ext3 support spaces in filenames? I know, I know, sounds stupid, but... !
