How to use Captive-NTFS with Trinity Rescue Kit 3.1?

Alright, as many of you probably noticed by now, Trinity's site is down (why?), so I had to download the not-so-new Version 3.1 (Version 3.2 is out, I believe) from a mirror site since my WinXP is being a pain (d347bus.sys is corrupt, gotta get rid of it). Basically, I just need to get Captive to work so that I can have NTFS RW access (I haven't found any distro that supports NTFS RW natively, and I don't know how to get Captive to work on SLAX... which is the LiveCD Distro I'm using and typing this from).

I'd be grateful if anyone can provide me with some sort of documentation on TRK or simply walk me through the steps of getting Captive initialized (I do hope I'm smart enough to figure it out from there once I actually get into Captive ).

Thanks in advance .

P.S.: I'm a n00b when it comes to Linux, so please be as detailed as possible in your description if it isn't too much to ask.

EDIT: I just realized that I posted this in the wrong section (There's a n00b section). Please forgive me mods!

The ntfs-3g / fuse driver system is really much easier to use and gives you rw access to NTFS drives with few problems. Here's a line from my /etc/fstab that shows all you need to do once you've installed ntfs-3g:
$ cat /etc/fstab | grep ntfs
/dev/sda1               /hd/c                   ntfs-3g rw,uid=root,gid=disk 1 0
