    Yes. NTFS support is fixed and suitable support is in mandrake 9.2

    Is NTFS support no longer regarded as "experimental"? From what I
    understood in the fdisk man page recently, it supports ntfs v.4 (Win NT 4)
    but not v.5 (W2K)

    It depends which NTFS driver you use. http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/status.html

    The rewritten NTFS driver is stable but its write features are quite restricted.

    No, it is not. NTFS Tools does not support writing to NTFS except in
    "file overwrite", i.e., writing the same size file back in place.

    To get write support, one needs the Captive utility which supposedly
    wraps the Windows NTFS driver a la WINE (but doesn't do anything else
    the NTFS Tools do, i.e., create and resize partitions). AFAIK,
    Mandrake does not have this utility installed by default (or even on
    the CDs AFAIK).

    Red Hat 8.0-9.0 and Mandrake 9.1 binaries are here:

    for full read/write support, supposedly.
