Partition Visibility to Windows
I have a hard drive that has Win XP on it and I want to add a logical partition (ext3) to install Linux. And then have a VFAT32 logical partition after that and another ext3 partition for the Linux swapfile.
/hda1 -> Win XP NTFS primary partition
/hda2 -> Linux ext3 logical partition
/hda3 -> VFAT32 partition
/hda4 -> Linux ext3 swapfile
The problem I am wondering about is whether or not Win XP will be able to see the VFAT32 parition. When I used OS/2, Windows could not. I was just wondering if Win XP will bypass the partitions format that it does not recognize and go on instead of stopping there.
