from *Write support:* Last, but not least, the kernel driver now does all sorts of mambo jumbo when mounting a volume R/W. Features come slower than ntfsmount (fuse) but much more stable. So RW use of kernel-driver is now really reliable? (using 2.6.15-gentoo-r5) Or better to use ntfsprogs/fuse? michal
