Re: converting NTFS drive

Dear All,


My machine is Win2K+FC4 and I have a second physical drive mounted. On it, there are 3 partitions, NTFS+NTFS+EXT3. I'd like to convert NTFS to what can be accessed both by Win2K and FC4. How could I do that? Do I need backup all the files on NTFS without worry about on EXT3? Thanks!


The only common filesystem between Linux and W2K is FAT32. There are NTFS modules for Linux, but I'd onlu use them for READING the NTFS partitions. Writing NTFS from Linux is problematic at best. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- - Rick Stevens, Senior Systems Engineer rstevens vitalstream com - - VitalStream, Inc. http://www.vitalstream.com - - - - To err is human, to moo bovine. - ----------------------------------------------------------------------


I thought that NTFS write support exited the "dangerous" phase and is considered "stable". Haven't tried it myself though.
