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 !
