i find the ntfs-3g in gslapt and it already installed, so what should i do next? update with the latest?
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
(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.
