If you mean you will be able to store files on it and use it as a storage drive , YES YOU CAN. With NTFS-3g , http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=217009

OR if you want to without that , visit this link :


If you want to INSTALL ubuntu on that NTFS disk , you cant because u can only install it on ext3.

Ubuntu should be able to autodetect ntfs disks during install time. If for some reason it does not, just post back here and someone will help you setup Ubuntu to correctly mount ntfs disks.

NTFS-3g are for older versions of Ubuntu, you don't need to install it any more. To mount your NTFS partition, check the how to on my signature...
