Writing to an NTFS partition

I have a WinXp NTFS partition that I want to write to on my XP/Mandrake dual boot. Is there any way or program that I can download to do this. My windows partition is already mounted.

I don't know if this will help but I also have a dual boot with both Windows XP and Mandrake and what I did was create a small (2gig) fat32 partition so that I could share between XP and Mandrake. Which works great because fat32 can be written to and from either Windows or Mandrake without harming either.
