|Okay, I finally got Kubuntu Linux and have it running dual-boot with my WinXP Home Edition. My orig. HD was a 40 gb NTFS. The Kubuntu partitioner could not scratch it so I had to improvise with a 4.1 gb HD. Kubuntu turned that to FAT32. Anyway. Each OS cannot detect/read each other. Didn't really care until yesterday. For by B-Day, I got a 40.1 gb external HD that is standard NTFS. Linux can read, but not write, rename, delete, etc. Is there a debian that enables NTFS support on Kubuntu Linux?

Has several tools for accessing NTFS partitions from Linux.
Also, these 2 commands May enable you to access it for read/write.
Ntfsmount is a WIP driver for NTFS access:
First, you will need to install FUSE.
To find out if your kernel supports fuse, run (as root)
modprobe -l | grep fuse | wc -l
If the output is 0 it doesn’t, an output of 1 means it does.
If you use a Debian based distribution without FUSE kernel support, use module-assistant to compile it. Example: You will need to do the following (as root):
apt-get install kernel-headers-`uname -r` fuse-source module-assistant
Note: If you compile ntfsprogs from source, you will need the libfuse-dev package (before you run ./configure) or ntfsmount will not be built. You will need libfuse2 too for running it.
You mean NTFS write support. The Linux Kernel NTFS driver does not support writing to NTFS. You'll need a 3rd party kernel driver (and will have to compile the kernel yourself).
It works better if you install Kubuntu on a ext3 partition and download the ext2 driver for windows (that way you can read and write to ext3 and ext2 drives from windows).
