writing on NTFS partition

I have mounted my ntfs partition with the following command:

/dev/hdb1 /mnt/windows ntfs user,nls=utf8,umask=0222 0 0

Everthing works good, I can access all files and folders the way I want, except that I cannot write on the partition even when I set permission to write on any folder or file (logged in as root).

I would like to be able to modify some of the files I access and save the changes... How can I do that though?


Thanks in advance

Might want to check out this link: NTFS-3g.

In short special drivers have to be installed at the kernel level (I think) in order to write to NTFS partitions.
