Linux can read NTFS, and even write it, but it's slightly flaky and I
wouldn't use it when there's a simpler alternative available : fat32.
Create a separate partition under NT, format it as fat32 instead of
NTFS, and make sure you have support for it compiled into your Linux
Problem solved : you'll see this area as a separate drive under NT and
can mount it easily into your Linux filesystem.
