Thanks guys for the quickly replys !

I was thinking that creating a FAT partition would be less painfull than 
creating a NTFS partition and trying to get NTFS-3G working on Linux/BSD.

But I found some size limitation on FAT32 partition, then I tryed to use 
NTFS-3G and it worked nice.

I'm using now :

#: ntfs-3g /dev/ads0 mnt/win

And it works like a charm with read/write permission.

It's for personal use and not on a production server so it won't be too 

Thanks again for the support guys !
