See NTFS partition in Fedora

How do I view and write to an NTFS partition in Fedora. I mainly just want the view and read the most, heard that writing to an NTFS partition in Linux is experimental. And can anyone point me to a Linux version of DC++ and Bit torrent. I want to share and save stuff thats on my NTFS partition when I'm running DC++ in Linux and save files to my NTFS partition from BT.

well writing to an NTFS drive is kind of a no no ...
there is developmental support in the 2.6.x kernel now
that if you really want to, you can test ... or you can try
Captive .. but since
i don't use windows nor an NTFS partition, i can't tell you
how Captive works, nor if it does correctly ...

as of DC, my favorite linux client is DCGUI-QT
and here is a link for bittorrent ...

oh, and here is info on mounting your NTFS partition ...

so i personally think you should just download your stuff to your main drive ...
as of sharing, once you mount the partition, it will not be a problem to share stuff on
that drive, since people that connect to you to download stuff will not be writing
to the partition ...
