Not really a bug, but the Kernel installed by 7.0 does not seem to have NTFS file system support compiled in.  Really annoying on dual-boot 
Linux/WinNT or Win2k systems.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-12-04 06:21:54 UTC
NTFS support is buggy - it eats disks. It's intentionally disabled.

Comment 2 stano 2001-01-06 12:20:07 UTC
Eh? _Write_ support is dangerous (always was and can be
turned off when compiling the kernel), but read-only
works fine for me (both NT 4.0 and W2K, since 2.1.something
up to 2.4.0-test12 kernels). It would be nice to have it
included by default, not everyone likes to compile kernels :-)
