Suse 9.0 Professional able to read NTFS?

I have a 80 gig hard drive with all of my movies and music on it.

The hard drive is formatted in NTFS.

Can Suse 9.0 Pro read this? Can it write to it? Copy to the hard drive that Suse it on from the NTFS harddrive?

It most certainly can read from it (most linux distros can read-only ntfs...that's never really been a problem), but I'm not sure about writing. Possibly, but that is fairly new, so I don't want to promise anything. Mandrake can, but I've never heavily tested it, so no promises.

Well i had Redhat and it couldnt read from it out of the box. Just wondering if Suse was different or same.

Writing to it would be nice. Moving files back and forth would be nice to

....... in general, one option for sharing data between an OS like Win2k/XP when formatted with NTFS, and a Linux distro is to use a separate FAT32 partition - both OS's can read/write to/from FAT32.
