  1. Ok, I have Mac OS X SL installed next to Windows 7. The Windows 7 hard drive shows up on the Mac OS desktop as a mounted volume, but I cannot write to it. I can read it, but I cannot add any files to it.. the problem is, my USB crapped out on me, and the Windows installation needs an ethernet driver, which I have on my Mac installation.. but I cannot add it to the windows hd cuz it is formatted as NTFS, and so I cannot write to it.. how can I get the drivers on there without using a USB drive, a CD, or a disk?

    Until someone convinces me otherwise, I think enabling it in 10.6 itself is better than MacFuse/NTFS-3g.

    Here is how to do it.

    There is also NTFS Mounter that will do it for you so you don't have to mess with terminal.
