As of the 2.6 kernel the NTFS write support is no longer considered 
experimental and therefore reasonably safe. That said I can't personally 
vouch for it's stability. 

One thing to look for if you could write once and now cannot write anymore, is 
to see if the NTFS support is compiled in as a module, and check to see if it 
is loaded.  Another thing to check would be if you ran some kinda graphical 
SUSE configuration tool that might have modified your fstab? Check that the 
permissions there allow write access. Although I believe SUSE has some kinda 
automounter that makes this slightly problematic. I believe the correct 
options in your fstab would be something like this:

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows  auto umask=0,user,exec,rw 0 0
