To read and write ntfs

sudo aptitude install ntfs-config

Does this make me use NTFS on ubuntu?

I assume you mean grub - if so hardy is an os and grub is the bootloader which tells your pc what you want to boot with.

Gutsy :)

I can't remember many of the differences tbh - one was pulseaudio a different sound server, but there are many others - make a thread in the community cafe about it I expect you'll get replies there.

Hardy was just released in April, it is a LTS release which means that there will still be support for it for the next three years. Gutsy was released last October 2007. It is just a regular release it will only be supprted for 1 year. Ubuntu is on a six month release cycle, which means there is a new version every six months. New versions are usually released every April and October.

You don't really need an anti-virus.
