Iv been reading about how NTFS support is limited to read-only... I've got a different linux-based operating system called Knoppix. It seems to handle NTFS absolutely fine. Maybe this can be incorperated into Puppy?

NTFS write access across Linux ALL DISTROS is unstable.

Here is some info from the horse's mouth:

Here is the explanation from the driver developers.

And this one directly from the Knoppix website. If you are using an older version of Knoppix it is most likelly using captive, which was removed due to write issues.

If you have been able to read/write to NTFS without corrupting your NTFS partition, you have been lucky but you are taking a risk. Of course, "unstable" does not mean that it will fail, just that the posibility that it will corrupt your partition is very high.

I prefer having a shared FAT32 partition that I can use from linux and windows.
