are you sure?  i was perusing kernel list archives a few days ago and
all i ever saw in regards to NTFS was that it was broken and
unmaintained in 2.4 and might just get canned.  all of Alan's
tasklists lately have always had NTFS listed as fix it or can it.

i have a partition for both /var/tmp and /tmp and have no problems,
granted this may very well be uber paranoid, but hell the disk is huge
