Parition magic let's me do it like that, but I don't want to apply it until I know if its going to mess anything up. Before, I just had that top NTFS, and the bottom Extended with only one NTFS in it. But I will add those two linux paritions if its safe.
So far, it seems that things get done a bit faster, but its still too soon to tell yet. I've only had it installed for about a week, it seems to be a bit zippier. The filesystem makes in no time (under a second). So now I have a filesystem that my Windows definitely won't understand!
veritas, if you're using a kernel newer than 2.6.6, you should have very little to worry about writing from linux to your ntfs as well.
Distribution: Ubuntu Server, Slackware, Red Hat 6.1

Wasn't really gunna use the ntfs with linux anyways. I just had that as a second hard drive under windows XP for organization purposes and I didnt want the linux paritions to conflict with it under XP. But i barely used it, so I just wanted to split it up and install slackware again. All is well now, I am just losing some hair over getting hardware acceleration working with my ATI PCI card...
love your sig. I wish I could help. Mine should be #rain | less
Have you posted a thread about your card? Which model is it? I have an ATI and have been through a lot of reading because its a video capture card with no tv. Not docs around on how to get it working. But, I have reada lot of crap about ATI cards.
