"modprobe ntfs", optionally followed by an "lsmod" to
see if it loaded.

read-only support. There is a thing called
"captive-ntfs" that uses a "wrapper" that then uses
the Microsoft Windows ntfs driver that you can steal
from a copy of Windows that offers full read-write
support, but it is a little flakey (not to mention
immoral to us open-source types).

file that it will write over the normal copy. You
would have to tamper with this to stop that behaviour.
If you install the Samba-3 with SWAT that is in the
"files" section, then SWAT will give you tons of
documentation on using Samba and a more complete web
interface on how to set it up. Hint: To get into SWAT
do: "http://<linkstation's IP>:901" once it is enabled
Be patient, we will eventually figure out easier ways
to do all this, or at least better instructions.
