Samba Question regarding NTFS and write
I've got a NTFS file system mounted as READ ONLY on my Linux box.
Can I access this as READ-WRITE from a Windows machine using SAMBA.
I can certainly get READ access to the file system from the Windows Box
So config is as follows
Linux machine with external disk mounted as /dev/sda5 on directory /blackdog2. File system is NTFS
Windows machine can see via SAMBA setup Blackdog2 and can access all the directories on this drive.
Can I write to it from the Windows machine -- ?? I get permission denied when I try and write to it from Windows. -- I suppose this might be because there is no write NTFS facility yet.
FAT32 works for write -- but I don't like FAT32.
Another solution is obviously to convert this to a Linux file system and then use SAMBA to write to the drive from Windows machines.
Anybody got any ideas on a WRITE NTFS module for linux or would it really be better to convert the whole disk to REISERFS and only access it from via the server (which is probably what I want to do anyway).
