Yep, but you will need the NTFS module loaded - which may required that
you recompile your kernel with NTFS support. Warning - by default, it
doens't include write-to-ntfs support. That has to be turned on separately
(as the write code isn't considered stable).

No. The user you are logged in as has to match the UID of the files on
the NFS filesystem - it's not like SMB where you set the permissions on
the files with a username/password.
Basically, create an account on the linux box that has the same UIDs as
the files on the NFS fileserver. It's the userid number, not the login
name that has to match, BTW.
