My problem has not been with NTFS corruption in Linux, but with NTFS'  
propensity to mark itself dirty in a way that Linux refuses to fix.  I  
then have to wait to go into work to mount in in windows and allow it  
to be marked OK so that Linux will mount it again.

If I find that FAT32 will not make this drive usable, I have a nice  
hammer that will make it into usable scrap metal.
