Hello guys I am very new to Linux. I was doing different distributions and I have found out that I really like Ubuntu and opensuse. My story is that I have windows xp and opensuse 10.2 and I have a dual boot. Well when I use opensuse I would like to transfer files from my opensuse to xp. But I can because of my permissions. So I right click on the folder and went to the permission tab and it would let me change my permission to writing both ways. Can anyone help me with this problem? Thank you!

Generally there are problems with writing to ntfs (ie windows) file systems from linux (I'm sure there are plenty here who will disagree with me) and writing from windows to most linux file systems. However, if you set up a shared partition using fat32 you should be able to read and write with both.

Hopefully this helps

also try to log in as root, I had a similar issue. If logged in as root and still cant tranfer files, try doing it from windows, i think the default drive was like "f" or something when i dual booted with suse10.2 and windows, but give it a shot anyway.
