Years ago, use of FAT was the recommended way.  One main reason was
that writing to NTFS partitions from Linux was dangerous.  This has
changed and now it is regarded safe to do so by using ntfs-3g.

I do not know exactly what failed in your case.  I have yet to update
my CentOS-5 laptop that has WIndows on one partition (NTFS).  Will see
how it goes.
