Thanks for the explanatory information.

As I said: "NTFS support under Linux is incomplete".

Perhaps you consider "read only access" to be a synonymn
for "complete access". I do not.

Possbily, the reason "captive NTFS" failed for me under
Knoppix is the default areas for install are ro. I didn't
investigate further.

I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
