It is NTFS.

I regularly mount another NTFS partition, though on hda (IDE device), so
I know that, in theory, it should work. Whether the drivers are from the
Planet kernel I cannot say.

> 3) What revision of 1394 code is running in your kernel? How recent?

[root@localhost 2.4.22-6.ll.rh90]# modinfo -V modules.ieee1394map
modinfo (Linux modutils) 2.4.22

Hey... I didn't realize that the system actually saw the drive.

Whenever you get the time to respond is fine with me. Thanks.
