from the man page to ntfsmount (etch)

        ntfsmount - NTFS module for FUSE.

        ntfsmount device mount_point [-o options]

        ntfsmount  is a FUSE module that rely on libntfs. You need FUSE
to com-
        pile it, xattr is recommended, but not mandatory.

        Fully implemented ntfsmount features:
               · Read-write access to normal and sparse files.
               · Read-only access to compressed files.
               · Access to special Interix files (symlinks, devices, FIFOs).
               · List/Read/Write/Add/Remove named data streams.
               · Supports Linux and FreeBSD.

        Partly implemented features:
               · Create/Delete/Move files and directories.
               · Hard link files.

I have no expierience myself how trustable that is...

HTH, Johannes

I tried a little. It seems that files can be edited but not created or removed.
