I think you may have a tough time finding that. Supposedly, NTFS is a c1
(supposedly soon to be c2) secure file system, which means that no OS
except for NT is supposed to be able to read/write from it. I heard that
MS is considering legal action against the guy who wrote the NTFS-read
stuff for linux, since the code was copywrite or some such.

I personally think the only way a micro$oft operating/file system will be
secure is to turn the computer off. In my opinon, this doesn't change
the amount of usefullness versus when the machine is turned on.


software is cheap fast and reliable (pick two).
All day, everyday, chasing doughnuts up a hill.
