Change ntfs line in fstab


I've added a line in fstab to automatically mount ntfs. Right now the ntfs partition is in "read only" state.

Code:
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows1 ntfs ro,umask=0222,user,gid=users                0 0
How to change the line to so that I can read and write as well...?

The correct answer -- read/write access from linux to NTFS is dangerous and you risk hosing your NTFS partition. The proper way to share files is to use a shared FAT32 partition.

Now that you've been warned, you have to load a read write module (or recompile your kernel with it involved). I've also used Captive NTFS (a year or so ago) out of desperation to reset the admin password of an XP install and nothing went bad. But a friend of mine tried the same thing and ended up having to reinstall Windows...

Honestly you're better off not writing to the ntfs partition. As already stated, is better to use a FAT32 shared partition.

The kernel must be compiled with that function either as a module or into the kernel itself. If it wasn't selected to be compiled one way or the other when the kernel was compiled, you'll have to recompile the kernel to add it.
