Question Editing NTFS and FAT32 partitions under linux?

I need to be able to change and alter my NTFS and FAT32 (basically my windows partitions) partitions. My problem is that i'm running Mandrake 9.1 and I want to write and change the files on my Winsucks partitions.

NTFS write access is still in an experimental phase. Some would advise against trying it, but I've not tried it, so I have no opinion about it. I do use kernel-ntfs support to read my NTFS partitions and it works well.

Is where you can get more info about ntfs support.

Now does that allow you to write to that partition, or just read it?
