without putting yourself in major danger of damaging your NTFS filesystem you won't get write access to NTFS. apparently support has substantially improved in kernel 2.6.15.6 but i would still recommend leaving it a few months beofre thinking about it, if ever.

i don't believe it's possible, and again unless you're on the very latest 2.4 kernel, 2.4.32 i think, NTFS writing is still a very bad idea, and i've no idea if the latest 2.4 is even reliable anyway. it may be that your distribution contains a kernel module package sepreate to the kernel which you could install but i doubt that this is the case, and you must compile kernel modules for the right kernel exactly, you can't just throw them around the place.
