I have 14 GB of MP3's on my (NTFS) Windows side of my partition and I want to listen to them when I'm in Linux... Is it possible or do I have to have a second copy of all my music?

you're correct linux can not read ntfs partitions...use pmagic 7 and convert to fat32...then you will be able to listen to it I wouldn't copy 14 gigs just so you can listen...just convert.

linux CAN so read ntfs, leaast the newer kernels can.
i use mandrake 8.1 and can mount them to read fine, no write yet though :(

yes linux can* read ntfs partitions just fine, if you dont have the samba packages installed on your linux machine do so. read the man pages for info.
