Write to NTFS and hardware RAID questions.

I installed Leopard 10.5.1 on my desktop a few days ago with a dual boot of vista, so my hard drives are formatted in NTFS. I have a 400gb backup drive that I use for windows, and it shows up in Leopard, but I cant write to it. I can read files from it just fine, but what do I need to do to be able to write to it?

 

I have a RAID0 made up of 2x 500gb hard drives (which gives me about 1 terabyte of storage), and it has a lot more free space on it then my 400gb backup drive. Is there any way I can get Leopard to see this RAID and use the HD space? Its an Intel RAID chipset. I would love to have the option to save files from Leopard onto that RAID, since those hard drives wernt cheap and are pretty fast.

 

Also, is there a button/key combination that minimizes all windows and brings me to the desktop, like the 'show desktop' button in Windows?

 

Thats all the questions I have for now. Thanks.

There is a program called 'NTFS for Mac OS X' which is made from Paragon. It works very well, and will allow you to read and write on ntfs drives. Its not freeware, but you might be able to find it :censored2: ;)

 

Dunno about RAID stuff
