I'm running an HD install of Knoppix 3.6. I want to share a fat32 partition between Windows and Linux so that both can read and write to it. After creating such a partition in Linux only to have Windows view it as a healthy but unknown fat32 partition (that it wouldn't assign a drive letter to), I deleted the partition and remade it in Windows.
This seemed to work, as both Windows and Linux "saw" the partition (my fstab is regenerated at each startup). However, once I wrote to the partition in Linux, Windows viewed it again as a healthy but unknown fat32 partition that it won't assign a drive to.
My fstab line generated for the fat32 partition is
/dev/hda4 /mnt/hda4 vfat auto,users,exec,umask=000 0 0
Any help regarding this issue would be appreciated.
PS: Yes, I'm a newbie to Linux (perhaps I've had it for a week or two).
