It will be read-write with a 2.6 kernel.
I am running a 126.96.36.199 kernel and MY NTFS is ro :)
AFAIK the r/w for NTFS only works to replace data in existing files but
these cannot grow in size and maybe cannot even be created. Am I wrong ?
The is a snippet from the first googled page:
The NTFS support in Linux-2.6 is very limited (because Microsoft doesn't
disclose the technical bits about how NTFS works). Specifically, it does
not support these operations:
* Creating/deleting files
* Growing/shrinking files
It only allows writing over existing files.
