While I have been working with MS products for a long time now, I have only just recently installed Slackware linux 9.1 onto one of my machines at home. I had no problem installing it and it is running just fine

I did have XP on the machine before blowing it away and installing slackware. I did however keep one of the NTFS partitions with all my movies, photos, porn and general documents on it. I can mount it and view it under linux, so long as I am logged in as root.

It is however a read-only partition. Is that because it is NTFS ?? and is there anyway i can change it so that it is not read-only ??

Thanks guys
