enable ntfs read write in linux with out kernel compliation

I am Centos and fedora. I need to access windows xp partition

From CentOS, basically i am sharing one partition with FAT-32. But i would like share ntfs partition between Linux and Windows xp. I don;t want to modify / re compile my centos kernel.

so how to share windows NTFS partition with Linux without re compiling kernel ?

So upon search i got solution that is ntfs-3g. From their website http://www.ntfs-3g.org


The NTFS-3G driver is an open source read/write NTFS driver for Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, NetBSD, and Haiku. It provides safe and fast handling of the Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows 2000 and Windows Vista file systems. POSIX file system operations are supported, and full file ownership and permission support is available as well.”

http://www.ntfs-3g.org/ntfs-3g-1.2216.tgz is latest ntfs-3g

No need to compile kernel you can mount ntfs fle system with mount command or using fstab
