Talking USB parttioning <-- not an issue just something to think about


Interestingly enough windows xp does not support you having more then one partition on a usb thub drive.


Now this is not a physical limitation cause in linux i can have the 2 partitions and have them mounted at the same time.


In windows xp i only see the first one and disk management says there was an error in reading the second drive.

So as it would seem windows xp is unable to see more then one partition on a thumb drive and linux can. Whata shame

Question USB partitioning

Well, then, as a general question, as I am someone who is brand-new to USB thumb drives,
and I've never even attempted to partition anything in Linux, would you care to explain how
you went about re-partitioning the thing ?

The stock answer for Windows seems to be "use Partition Magic", which I don't have.

Do both partitions automount or whatever it's called when they show on the desktop,
or do you have to use a mount command after it's plugged in to see them ?
