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!!
