Yes obviously it would be like that only. NTFS partition wont have a Write Access to it from Linux. Only Read Access is enabled. On the other hand FAT16 and FAT32 Partitions have both Read/Write Access from Linux.

>i can see a line sda5 ntfs(rw)
That's probably a line in the /etc/fstab file. Just because it requests that the partition be mounted as r/w doesn't mean the operating system has the means to do so.

>my frnd said he had once written in tj\he ntfs partition
It's absolutely possible -- re-read my link, it provides a very nice little driver for rw access of NTFS partitions.

ntfs-3g is being hailed as a working driver, but it's still very much in beta. You could give it a shot though (it's mentioned on joeprogrammer's link).

yes the only reason most distributions dont include NTFS writing by default is because it is a bit buggy and if linux newbies managed to trash thier windows instillations, it would give linux a bad name with the newbies

That's what was warned earler too, these are buggy drivers. What is the version of SUSE you are using?
