Smile SuSE 9.2 DualBoot with XP and Partition Help/Advice Required

Hello Folks

I'm about to install SuSE 9.2 with XP, my questions is this: Is it possible to move or copy my downloaded files (from SuSE) onto a NTFS Partition?

If it is possible, how do i need to configure this?

All help appreciated thanks in advance

As far as I know, the support of NTFS support in linux is still sort of experimental, which means that you can read the content of NTFS disk from linux, but U can't write to it reliably since NTFS spec is not public available. Thus, my approach is to have a small FAT32 partition somewhere on your hard disk so that you can copy files between linux and NTFS partitions.
