Unhappy Windows partition & access

I'm running Mandrake on a dual boot with Windows XP. Anyway, i can access the XP partitions fine(read-only), but how do i enable Read/Write.

I've tried using Root, & i've had at look at a few settings but no joy.

read write is only possible with vfat or dos partitions.

WinXP is NTFS which is read only at the moment.
