Yes linux can read an ntfs system, it would require you to compile support for in the kernel, then you will be able to mount -t ntfs / /

Check if you are using apm or acpi, and make sure that this is all in the kernel too, it could be your using one when you have the other

I ran into the same problem. I have a laptop running nicely with no observable power left in my battery.

To check if you are running ACPI / APM goto System Settings -> More Settings -> Services. If you have the services installes, this is where you can enable/disable them. (Something like that)

I believe my laptop uses ACPI which is not installed on my system. I am currently in the process of looking for an install. An RPM would be quite handy. If you find one before I do; any chance of a link?

Good Luck!

the way i did it instead of all the complicatedness was that i created a 200mb vfat partition to use as swap space between linux and windows. Using fedora core i can write and read the vfat partition
