Q. How do I access my Windows NT/XP NTFS partition from Linux?
A. In order to access NTFS partition you need support compiled into running Linux kernel. You may need to recompile the kernel to include NTFS support.
There is a Linux-NTFS project. The goals of the project are to develop reliable and full feature access to NTFS by the Linux kernel driver, and by a user space filesystem (ntfsmount), and to provide a wide collection of NTFS utilities (ntfsprogs) and a developer’s library (libntfs) for other GPLed programs.
