Here is the howto:

IIRC the ntfs-3g and fuse were both in the repositories.

Have you tried gslapt to find them?

You should grab the source code and compile it:

http://flomertens.free.fr/ntfs-config/download/source/ntfs-config-1.0.1.tar.gz

You can use the assistance of vpackager.

vpackager isn't gslapt.  It's a separate piece of GUI software to make it relatively easy to compile from source.  I don't understand why you have to compile from source when everything is in the repository.

To confirm that ntfs-3g is installed, go to /var/log/packages and look for a file that begins with ntfs-3g.

I never used VL5.8 SOHO, but here is the line for read-write permissions for an NTFS drive from /etc/fstab on my VL 5.9 Standard partition:

/dev/hda8   /mnt/win-g  ntfs-3g  defaults,allow_other,umask=0,users,nls=utf8,noexec,noauto 0 0

I expect this would work in your version, but I could be wrong. You do, of course, have to enter the right identification for the drive (mine is /dev/hda8) and the right mount point (mine is /mnt/win-g). If you want your NTFS partition to be automatically mounted when VL starts, leave out the "noauto" part of the above line. I prefer to mount NTFS partitions only when I want to use them. When I'm done, I unmount them. When you want to mount your unmounted NTFS partition, open a terminal and type
mount /mnt/win-g
(substituting the mount point for yours instead of /mnt/win-g--it must match the mount point in the line in /etc/fstab)

Be aware that writing to NTFS is still considered somewhat experimental in Linux. I've been doing it for a couple of years without problems and I haven't read negative reports about ntfs-3g in this forum, so you can probably proceed with confidence. I suggest not doing a lot of writing to NTFS partitions. I rarely write to an NTFS partition, I just like to have it as a possibility if I want to do it. For Windows files I intend to write to in Linux, I have a FAT32 partition. It has long been safe to write to a FAT32 partition from Linux.

I didn't realize we were talking about 5.8.  Yes, upgrading to 5.9 would be a huge help.  5.8 SOHO is more than a year and a half old and there have been big improvements to ntfs-3g.  That's why you were being advised to compile from source.  The newest version isn't available for 5.8.

Install 5.9 and then grab any updates out of the patches repository for ntfs3g, fuse, samba, etc... and some of your problems may disappear. 

ntfs3g is automatic.  You don't need to do anything to use it except mount the filesystem and have at it.  By all means go to a newer version.

upgrade to 5.9 maybe resolving my problem at all

actually i don't mount my ntfs for write on it, i only need it to read,
i mean, all of my mp3 is inside my ntfs partition Tongue
you know it's feel plain while you use it in silent Undecided

so if upgrade is the best choice, then i'll do...

by the way what's different between vl soho 5.9 gold & vl soho 5.9 light final

There is no such thing as as VL Light SOHO.  Light and SOHO are very different from one another.  The three VL releases are as follows:

VL Standard - a lightweight OS with a choice of the Xfce desktop or the lightweight Fluxbox or JWM window managers.  No KDE, no OpenOffice, nothing big or bloated.   All can be added from the repository, of course.

VL SOHO Deluxe -  a full-featured OS with the KDE desktop, OpenOffice, and a wide variety of multimedia applications.  Comes on two CDs or two downloadable isos.  SOHO is no longer free with the 5.9 release.  $19.95 to download.

VL Light - an extremely lightweight OS designed for older legacy systems and netbooks.  Very fast but with only lightweight applications and desktop included.  Choice of desktops: LXDE, Fluxbox, or JWM.  Anything for the above releases can still be added from the repository, but that kind of defeats the purpose of Light.

Only you can decide which release is right for you.  If you are happy with VL 5.8 SOHO then 5.9 SOHO is probably what you want.
