Re: nvidia driver kernel 2.6.9 667



I also want to enable ntfs so that I can move data between my Windows
partition and Linux.  I'll need source for that unless they've enabled
ntfs in the kernel as default.  I don't think they have:

mount -tntfs /dev/hda1 tmp
mount: fs type ntfs not supported by kernel
