You can write to NTFS with Knoppix. You just have to mount it as a
read/write volume. By default it mounts as read-only. The writing I think is
still technically considered expiremental. But many still use it without
problems.

Argh - that is probably it. Do you think that would be the issue for the
jump USB drive though ? I had given up on the hard drive to hard drive
(there are two in this PC) and was trying the jump drive just now.

Sounds like it is time to use Google :-)

Thanks !

Chuck,

If the drive is NTFS, I think that it's read-only if you boot from a Linux
CD.

At least, that's how it is in my dual-boot Kubuntu / WinXP laptop.

To make the NTFS partition read-write, I needed some additional packages,
IIRC.
