You can, however remember that the NTFS kernel write drivers are (AFAIK) 
experimental and may screw up your drive.

Wine works pretty good.  I've been able to use Microsoft Word, Excel, 
Internet Explorer, and Trillian (http://www.trillian.cc) with it.  I 
haven't tried anything else, though.  I have Wine pointed at my WinME 
installation (the machine is dual boot, Linux/WinME; it's my laptop, and 
it's got a Winmodem built in).
