Just to clarify for the list (it was a private email):

I said that NTFS write support is experimental still, but it's easy to
have a small, say 100Mb partition, that is FAT32 that both XP and Linux
can read+write. It's what I do.

It seems that a new NTFS driver is in the works, but write support isn't
there yet: http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/status.html

Is there a better solution, short of using another computer to plonk
files onto for the transfer?
