I have already asked this question over here

https://superuser.com/questions/323414/cant-see-logical-windows-ntfs-partition-in-os-x

and I got one answer thats satisfying but risky to attempt such action, so anyone else can up with less risky alternative?

I vote for installing NTFS-3G via macports and it is the best way IMHO. Check this well-written and detailed description http://fernandoff.posterous.com/ntfs-write-support-on-osx-lion-with-ntfs-3g-f

Mac OS X does not natively support RW access to NTFS partitions.

You'll need a combination of MacFUSE:

and Amit Singh's NTFS RW driver:

MacFuse is pretty much abandonware, and hasn't been updated since 2009. There is a new project called OSXFuse that is picking up where MacFuse left off and is compatible with Lion:

Also, as of 10/25/2011, the easy download location for the open source NTFS-3G
