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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
