Will Menuet be able to see an ntfs any time soon?

The reason I am asking is because I would like to write the ramdisk to to my hard dist which is not a FAT32 file system it is an NTFS (Win XP sp 1) I actualy wrote the Ramdisk image to it but when I reboot to XP I couldnt find the file. I watched my HD leds as Menuet wrote to the disk so I know it has been done but I just cant find it.

I have 1 HD with two partitions, One is HP's recovery partition,Drive D: , 5GB Fat32.
The other is my C: drive which is 52GB with an NTFS.

I was assuming that since Menuet can see the Fat32 partition that it would just see that partition.

I used Setup from the Menuet Desktop. I may have set my HD settings wrong. I need to set it to Primary Master and the second partition(my FAT32 partition).

To my knowlage there is no drive overlay but I am not to familiar with how WinXPs NTFS is set up.

Can any one help me out with this?

Thanks in advance!

The problem is not in seeing the partition (this could be done easily). You need to have at least read access to NTFS and this needs still a lot of work. I don't know if there is someone interested in the subject that has started the implementation already.
If not, you could start it and you will need some theory. A good starting point is:

I hope to help develope Menuet some day but right now I am reading The Art Of Assembly Language, It is a huge book but is verry helpfull for a newbie to Assembly language. Pluss I have been downloading every possable pdf document I can find that will be of a future help.

For now, though, the Art of Assembly is the most helpfull book I have started reading.

If any newbies are interested in a vast ammount of information about Assembly programing I would recomend reading this book, its freely available at

http://webster.cs.ucr.edu

I would aslo recomend that you DO NOT read windows programing, also available at http://webster.cs.ucr.edu, because it will suck you in to programng only on MS Windows.

Thanks pelaillo, for the link. And I appologize for going a bit off the subject.
