] Anyway, maybe what you want is a live CD with the ntfs-3g driver
] (beta), a temporary fork of, and improvement upon, ntfsmount, offering
] for the first time really good write-mode support:
Thank you for pointing me to the heart of the matter, ntfs-3g. I burned
and then booted from a copy of Puppy Linux 2.11 which has ntfs-3g sup-
port, and was able to modify key Windows XP files on my NTFS partition,
retaining the ability to boot afterwards.
I've hence added a bootable Puppy Linux 2.11 CD to my collection of
rescue CDs and will also be shipping a copy of this CD 400 miles north
to my friend in Oregon.
