Well, according to the source code for the kernel in
/usr/src/linux/fs/ntfs/fs.c, you can enable CONFIG_NTFS_RW which allows writes
to the NTFS file system.  I suspect that this may be experimental at this point
but the code appears to be in the driver.  By the way, this is in kernel
2.2.17. I'll bet it's better in 2.4.8.  I have no idea if Mandrake's default
kernels have CONFIG_NTFS_RW enabled.
