i think you might have to wait for the next kernal release. What i had to do is make a fat 32 partition and for all those files that i need to share between linux and windows i saved them to that partition and then all you have to do then is just figure out how to mount that drive.

You can try captive-ntfs but you need either Windows 2000 or Windows XP because it depends a few files. captive-ntfs uses a combination of wine and ReactOS to read and write to NTFS.

i think you might have to wait for the next kernal release.
I do not think it would never be stable to write to NTFS unless the kernel developers start to decompile the files that captive-ntfs uses to handle NTFS partitions. Microsoft is going to introduce WinFS but that will come out three to five years from now.

BTW, I do not know how stable captive-ntfs is with kernel version 2.6.x because at the time captive-ntfs there was 2.4.x
