Yeah, bad news on the most part - NTFS with linux is not a point and click operation.

You're best bet, (if it's feasible with the drive and partitioning) would be to create a temporary FAT32 store that you can access from linux which is much easier to setup. On my 60GB laptop drive i had a 10GB FAT32 partition, enough to transfer a couple of dvd images if required.

There are a few projects in the works, like enterprise said, but they require a general understanding of file systems and a pretty good knowledge of linux.

Check out http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu_Edgy which has links to the previous versions - dapper, breezy and hoary that i used when i was discovering linux.

the really strange part is it will let me view my external drive with no issues.. and its formated ntfs... i thought it was cause it mounted it while i was logged in to linux... so i tried dismounting and remounting the internal drive.. (sata, ntfs, windows install).. to no avail


well im gonna look at what you guys posted... sorry for responding before i did that :-P i just wanted to throw that out there
