Well, I can't really see the difference between the two scenarios: in
the first one, the danger is caused by a user directly logged on the
system trying to write into the NTFS partition.
In the second one the user will use a a samba share, hence the user
accessing the NTFS is the one running the samba server (probably
root), but to me this makes zero difference.
The danger is exactly the same.

I think the best option is to copy everything from the NTFS to the
linux partition and make the smb shares from that.
