Ubuntu comes with native support. Otherwise all distros (at least all distros I know of) can be made to do so using packages from http://www.ntfs-3g.org/ and following the installation instructions.

Ubuntu can do this without installing any additional software.
AMD Athlon X2 4200+ Processor@2.2Ghz per core, Asus M2N-E mobo, 1GBx2 PC-5300 DDRII RAM, 80 GB Seagate SATA drive 7200 RPM (ST380817AS), Nvidia nforce570 mcp chipset, XFX nvidia Geforce 8400GS 256MB(64 bit) 512MB-TC Graphics card, Bridge BM 17c monitor.

Hey again,

Will this work on a Ubuntu 7.10 Live CD as our PC has crashed and the drives are formatted NTFS and my External HDD is formatted as NTFS. I could reformat the External HDD as FAT32 as I have a Backup Partition that I am going to copy the files onto.

Thanks

Thanks!

If this doesn't work then I will use a Windows Live CD that I have just made with BartPE.

Thanks

I believe (not sure) Fedora has this built in now. However, many people are less than impressed with Fedora 8.
If someone tells you to su rm -rf /
DON'T DO IT!!!!
Be in the know, Bash smart!

Thanks all for replying.

I have used Ubuntu 7.10 Live CD to copy the files from my Internal HDD to my External HDD although I had a problem with the External HDD not mounting so I had 2 format the partition to FAT32 and found out that the whole HDD formatted!! DAMN!

Thanks
