If you mean "Does 2.6 read/write an NTFS partition", the answer is "maybe".  Linux can read an NTFS parition, but writing is still very experimental.

I believe read support for NTFS is quite stable and reading from it will not lead to any problems .... writing seems to be a suspect

Have a look at "captive-ntfs":

http://www.jankratochvil.net/project/captive/

If you recomplie your kernel to add support for this it will allow full read/write access to NTFS partitions. Full instructions are included on the site. I have successfullly run this on both 2.4.xx kernels and 2.6.x kernels.

Should see you right..
