Default Linux File System

Im currently running on Windows XP and I wanted to setup Linux SUSE as a secondary OS. I new to Linux and was wondering if anyone can tell me if I can setup Linux to have a compatible file system that can read Win XP's NTFS. If so, is it one of the three choices (Linux ext2, Linux ext3 or Linux Swap)?

Thanks in advance.

Do you want your Linux system to be able to read and write from/to your Windows system or the other way round?

I think I need Linux to be able to read/write into a Windows XP file system.

Thanks.

Hi there, I use SuSe 9.0 before to move in to Fedora Core 4, and just using Nautilus from SuSe I was able to access my files locally on my Win/NTFS drive and also able to run network without any configuration of samba accesing windows shares on other machines, but since I did not configure samba windows user only can see my machine but no able to see shares.

You just be able to double click on file system and be there, windows

Try out if not working, what SuSe you're using

Samba allows your linux server to provide network shares for windows clients and can act as a NT4 domain server.

Yes, I think so. It is part of almost every gnome installation.

You can read NTFS partitions from Linux, but you can't write to them. There are some very experimental drivers for Linux with which you might be able to write to NTFS, but I haven't tried.
