Is this possible, or am i living in a dream world?

If you only need read access to your NTFS partitions, it's easy enough to get the proper driver.

BTW, what kind of camera do you have? My Sony DSC-P71 works perfectly in Redhat.

I would think that an NTFS conversion to FAT32 is never a good idea.

Yea, I guess your right Seloce! NTFS is for higher hard-drives i recon and FAT32 doesnt support that high (i guess)

NTFS is simply a different file system... however it is true that FAT32 has never been created to support the HDs over aout 40 Gigs I think
