Partitioning: File systems and Mount points
Hello again, I working on paritioning my HD for a dual-boot. The goal is to make files shareable from one parition to the other (for web server files and mp3s).
The way I am trying to do this is make my /home partition a FAT32 file system so that windows can read and write to it. I came to a problem though. In Disk Druid I can't make a vfat filesystem in the extended parition (can't make a non-linux partition in linux file-system). So I decided to try partitioning with Slackware's fdisk (because I had the disk at hand and there is a tutorial on this web site using Slackware for partitioning). Well whem I'm all set and done with partitioning, I boot back into FC to install. When I get to disk druid, all of the linux partitions I made with Slackware said "Linux Native" rather than the ext3 I was expecting. Also, the one FAT32 partition said "Windows 95 FAT" or something to that nature instead of the vfat I was expecting.
What's worse, I can't set mount points with any of these partitions without formatting them. If not for this, I could have been daring and just have prayed that the partitioning would work and I'd accomplish my goal. However, I need to be able to set mounting points for these partitions.
How do I fix this problem? One obvious thing that came to mind was to use FC's fdisk (if there is one) to do the job, which I tried and failed at (just typed fdisk at boot: but no go). So I looked up fdisk on Google and found nothing. So next is to ask here. Is there an fdisk for Fedora that I can use to get this partitioning done, and if so how do I get to it?
Another thought was to find a way to set the mount points for the partitions using Slackware. However, I'm not familiar enough with the CLI to find out. Is it possible to do this? How?
