writing to NTFS Partitions

I'm using FC2 and I have my system patched to read NTFS partitions but how can I get it to write. I don't really care about risk cause all my windows info is stored on linux just incase.
please some way that doesn't involve recompiling the kernel unless you can give me a step by stecp

Silly question, but if you have all the stuff on Linux
anyway, why not just reclaim the partition (format with
Reiser) and not have the performance penalty?

If that's NOT an option you will have to recompile
the kernel, and while you're at it, use the captive
drivers rather than the kernel supplied ones.
