    I had everything configured so it worked with Tiger. Is there anything I have to change to be able to write on an NTFS partition on the network from Leopard?

    Check permissions of the shared directory on your Vista box, as it's 99% likely that's where the problem lies.

    When accessing a drive over the network, the filesystem (NTFS, FAT, Ext2, whatever) doesn't matter - what does matter is that you are authenticated with read-write permission for the share/directory concerned.

    I have checked and I have write permissions for that folder, but Leopard somehow finds that it has read-only permissions.

    I think I nedd to set up Leopard to use my Windows username and password, but I can't find out how to do this. :confused:
