I have a MacBook Pro with Boot Camp and sometimes I want to update information on the Windows partition but currently I have to boot in Windows and read from the Mac partition. I don't want to leave OS X to organize files.

It is possible.

You will first need MacFUSE and then NTFS-3G.

The User's Guide for NTFS-3G can be found here (PDF).

Just be aware of the bug that the Boot Camp partition sometimes disappears from the startup disk screen. I recommend using refit if your going to use NTFS-3G. – BinaryMisfit Oct 9 '10 at 12:07
