I've been using ntfs-3g with a great deal of success

Subject: Linux read/write access to NTFS partition

If I understand this article correctly:

there is a new NTFS Kernel driver for kernels  2.5.11 and
later that supports reading and writing to NTFS partitions.

<>Does Ubuntu have 
this kernel? If not, what plans to include
this kernel are there?

Is it true that reading from NTFS partitions could cause
corruption of the partition?

If anyone has experience with reading from or writing to an
NTFS partition please post your experience.

It is possible all this is in a FAQ / README  If so, please point
me in the right direction.
