It is completely possible to read and write to ntfs under FC3. You need
to download a small module and install. Writing to ntfs is not advisable
as it is such an unstable filesystem. Many distros don't come with ntfs
enabled in the kernel due to patent problems with Microsoft (though I
think that is under review)

> What kind of file system does fedora use anyway? 

Whatever type you like! By default (i.e. you let FC3 use it's own
defaults), it's ext3

What's defrag? Doesn't get done under Linux at all ;-)

> Any other tips on fedora would be nice aswell...

As questions. We're always happy to help out :-)
