[kde-linux] Fedora Core 3/4

I just recently tried FC 3 and found it to be a good distro, loaded without 
incident and seemed stable.

However, my main complaint with it is that it is the only distro [to my 
knowledge] that does not recognize NTFS disks out of the box and I have 
several that I need to copy files from into Linux, so I switched to SuSe 9.3, 
which does the job quite well: you can copy your NTFS files directly into 
Linux from a File browser, such as Nautilus or Konqueror in Suse. 

Tip: I don't recommend the so-called 'NTFS Kernel Patches' that supposedly 
allow FC to 'recognize' NTFS disks [read only]. If you 'google' them, you'll 
see that most support for them has been withdrawn from the main websites 
offering them [I think it's only one, I believe] and they caution you: Use 
at Your Own Risk, ie: you risk data loss.

Just my two cents,

Mike Bear
