(It installs ntfs-3g.deb and edits /etc/fstab.) It seems to work fine with Ubuntu Feisty. However, I still keep a 5 GB fat32 partition for sharing files between Windows and Linux.
If you are plugging in an external drive with an NTFS partition, you might need to specify mount options in order to write.

I tried writing to my external hard drive (It had been formated in NTFS by Windows (by mistake)) and I had no luck writing to it. Granted I am using Ubuntu not a strict Debian system right now. I plan to switch back to Debian now that Etch is finally out.
