I have a dual boot windows Vista and Fedora 7 box. I have mounted the ntfs (c drive) volume without any issues. But here is my problem.

On the vista I have files that are private (Windows lingo for only I have access to them) and I can not see them when viewing the mounted drive. I would like to share those file between operating systems without allowing anyone else access to them in vista (I will be the only one using linux).

Any ideas???

That's weird. In the past, I've accidentally locked myself out of entire folders on Windows XP, but switching over to Linux I could enter the folders and do whatever I want with them just fine, like it completely ignored the permissions of NTFS.

It might be something with your configuration. Whatever you're using for NTFS support (probably fuse), look to see if there aren't any options to ignore file permissions.
