ntfs filesystem

Hello Dante,

I must be confused. I know about the different types of filesystems
that can be made and mounted on the Linux VFS, but doesn't Wine allow
you to specify in the ./wine/wine.conf the filesystem type?

In Windows NT for example, the user can assign permissions in a
similar way that Linux allows. the same is true for Windows 2000 and
I suspect for Windows XP as well.

So this is really related to wine and how it interacts with the
psuedo filesystem. Is this correct?
