Linux - Windows happy happy
multiboot, ntfs-3g, midnight commander mp
 
 
Multiboot
Assuming grub2,
vi /boot/grub/grub.cfg
add,
menuentry Windows {
set root=(hd1,1)
drivemap -s hd0 hd1
chainloader +1
}
Note. -s makes it work in both ways, it switches hd0 to hd1 and the other way around too
 
 
ntfs-3g
Fetch, compile and install it,
wget http://tuxera.com/opensource/ntfs-3g-2011.1.15.tgz
tar xzf ntfs-3g-2011.1.15.tgz
cd ntfs-3g-2011.1.15/
./configure && make && make install

cd /mnt/
mkdir -p c
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 c/
 
Configure it,

Midnight Commander MP
Note. mcmp is just lighter than mc, of course I prefer it!
 
Fetch (http://mc.linuxinside.com/cgi-bin/dir.cgi), compile and install,
wget "http://mc.linuxinside.com/cgi-bin/dir.cgi?redirect=mc-4.1.40-pre9.tar.gz&dir=Releases"
tar xzf mc-4.1.40-pre9.tar.gz
cd mc-4.1.40-pre9/
vi mc.configure

--prefix=/usr/local

./mc.configure
make && make install
