From what I know about the ntfs support in the kernel, write access is potentially dangerous for an ntfs file system. If this is still feasible for you, make sure you compile your kernel for ntfs write support.

Consider yourself lucky.

NTFS support is Read-Only.
Do NOT write to NTFS from Linux.
It may corrupt your NTFS filesystem.
