Is there a way to make NTFS partitions writable? I've tried editing /etc/fstab but no avail.
I can only read and copy to linux partition but no writing.

There is no stable NTFS writing kernel right now. There are experimental kernel patches that you can find but I wouldn't recommend doing it on your main system, experimental means experimental, that meas it could very well screw up.

So the answer to your question is not yet. For now you can just read it.

NTFS writing is getting better ... but is still isn't quite there yet.

In the latest 2.6 kernels there is limited write capability, but I would use it on anything important.
