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

I'm currently using ntfsprogs for managing my NTFS partitions, it
works very well and I can create any file I want....the only problem I
experienced was while moving a lots of big files (>200MB) in the same
I just compiled the FUSE module...installed ntfsprogs (the latest
version)...umounted the ntfs partition (that was mounted with the
kernel's ntfs module ) and remounted it with ntfsprogs (modprobe fuse
&& ntfsmount /dev/hda5 /mnt/winc -o umask=0000).

Hope this helps.

while(n[rf]!='B'){putchar(rf[++n]-'\07');}return 0;}
