Type in mount in a console and see if it is mounted read only. Usually says (ro) at the end of the line if it is. It may also be that you have it set as root only for permissions.

If it is NTFS, you might want to leave it as read only. Some have lost data when writing to NTFS. That is what I have read anyway.

Post back what you get.

I don't know about Mandrake, but with FC3 I installed (not shipped with Fedora, though) the ntfs module that does read-write access,

It isn't recommended, afaik, to use that write possibility..

I have a dual boot system, and have three (excluding my boot and swap partitions) partitions: one for Linux, one for Windows, and one for both, which is FAT32. This is a filesystem both understand, so that's how you can share data storage between the OSes..

Hope this helps.
