[opensuse] can SuSE access in read/write mode an NTFS file system ?



Please, find in the following the list of partitions.
As root from SuSE I tried to change the access rights to a partition with ntfs file system. Apparently the mode change is performed even ifactually no change has taken place:

mauede@bordighera:/home> su -
Password:
bordighera:/home # ll
total 8
drwxr-xr-x 33 mauede users 4096 Aug 31 22:43 mauede
drwxr-xr-x 1 root users 4096 Jul 30 05:31 storage
bordighera:/home # chmod a+w ./storage/
bordighera:/home # ll
total 8
drwxr-xr-x 33 mauede users 4096 Aug 31 22:43 mauede
drwxr-xr-x 1 root users 4096 Jul 30 05:31 storage
bordighera:/home # chmod a+r ./storage/
bordighera:/home # ll

Do I need a special Linux driver to access an ntfs file system ?
