I've been investigating the possibility of having a dual operating system set-up with Linux and XP (which I currently have). My hard drive has a single volume formatted to NTFS which (based on most everything I've read about compatibility so far) seems to be a big liability with Linux. The SuSe website says reformatting to FAT32 with a fresh install of XP and then letting the automated installation/partitioning take over would be a good approach. Would this be a better way to go than sticking with NTFS?
Also, some sites state that Linux-based programs should never be used to create/resize NTFS partitions, but others state that such programs can be safe (I think QTPartition was mentioned as being ok). Any ideas?
All suggestions appreciated.
