yes you just need to install the drivers to allow you to do so

from your profile it says you use ubuntu, open up synaptic and search for NTFS, I forget the exact name, but one of the results will let you read/write to NTFS partitions, install that and away you go

Hope this helps

You probably want an ntfs-3g package. You will also need to install a fuse package as well, but you may already have it.
Then you may need to modprobe the fuse kernel module before using the "ntfs-3g" file system.
for example:
Code:
sudo /sbin/modprobe fuse

sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/windows -o rw,defaults,uid=<your-user-name>,gid=<your-primary-group>
