    Actually, it's not Linux vs NTFS, but the issue of which version of Samba is available.
    (well sort of; the OS Kernel needs support also).

    Mac OS X: http://discussions.apple.com/message.jspa?messageID=5648972

    Kernel support: http://buffalo.nas-central.org/index.php/Linux_NTFS_support

    Knoppix 5.1 (which is Linux on a CD) provides R/W support.

    NTFS-3g is the add-on for r/w support; query your Linux vendor to determine if
    this 'package' is available for download and install.
