how did you enable support? if you compiled it as a module then run "modprobe ntfs" first.

ok, without wishing to sound condescending... you only "believe" it's 2.4.20? in that case i'd question how you enabled the ntfs support in the first place. you would need to recompile the kernel to get ntfs support if it's not already compiled as a module (i.e. the modprobe command gave an error)

i also never mentioned anythign about SuSe.... you did reply to the right thread yeah?

I use captive-ntfs. It's GREAT - it actually uses ntfs.sys and the windows kernel to run NTFS. So you're hijacking their own code for read and *write* support. Look into it, highly reccomended and an easy install. Just have your kernel source code handy
