HPFS on Ubuntu


Knowing very little about Linux I am sorting out the issues of setting Ubuntu as 3rd opsys with WinXP + EComStation. I somehow thought Ubuntu would not recognize HPFS file system and was surprised to find out that a setting in device descriptor (or whatever that is in linux) is HPFS/NTFS. I know from trial install on my laptop that Ubuntu can read (and as far as I remember also write) NTFS. What is the story with HPFS? Maybe I do not need to make an extra compatibility FAT-partion?

HPFS is supported as a read only file system in linux. The module hpfs.ko needs to be loaded ( or support compiled in the kernel ) before you can mount a hpfs partition.

Haven't used it since my days with OS/2. Never used it with linux.

Thank you! Read only is fine.
