Thanks for the link but I don't think I'll use this solution.

The only reason for me to have an NTFS partition on my new Vaio PCG-Z1RMP is
the Sony recovery CD requiring a minimum of 10G should it ever be the only
way to bring the machine back to life.

Instead of wasting the space I'm loop mounting a fixed-size NTFS-file.
