13.04 partitioning issues?

Hi Eric: Doesn't look like you ever got an answer to this.  I remember
years ago that mkfs.ntfs wasn't considered reliable, nor was fsck.ntfs,
but I thought that had all been fixed with ntfs-3g...

On Ubuntu Forums one person suggests installing packages ntfs-3g
ntfs-config and ntfsprogs to get gparted to make ntfs partitions:

But I suspect you already have those packages installed, otherwise
gparted wouldn't have had an ntfs option in the first place.

You may be able to find more information at
http://www.tuxera.com/community/ntfs-3g-download/ which seems to be the
site for the organization that developed ntfs-3g.

All in all, I suspect it's probably for the best to use a Windows tool
to create proprietary Windows formatted partitions like ntfs.
