SO I installed the NTFS-3g driver and still nothing. It continues to tell me that this is a read only drive. I logged in as Root and tried to change the permissions on it but it won't let me... Anybody have anymore Mousey Clicky ways to get this fixed??

It is in the latest version of Ubuntu (7.04), although I'd have to refer
to docs to how to actually get it working :) :
$ aptitude show ntfs-3g
State: not installed
Maintainer: Ubuntu MOTU Developers
Uncompressed Size: 90.1k
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.5-0ubuntu1), libfuse2 (>= 2.6), libntfs-3g0 (>=
Description: read-write NTFS driver for FUSE
The ntfs-3g driver is an open source, GPL licensed, third generation
Linux NTFS driver for 32-bit, little-endian architectures which was
implemented by the
Linux-NTFS project. It provides full read-write access to NTFS,
excluding access to encrypted files, writing compressed files, changing
Technically it's based on and a major improvement to the third
generation Linux NTFS driver, ntfsmount. The improvements includes
and performance enhancements.
ntfs-3g is based on FUSE (userspace filesystem framework for Linux),
thus you will have to prepare fuse kernel module to be able to use it.
