This is the first post I've made where I don't have a problem that needs urgent attention! Yay!
My friend's father lent me a USB pen drive (1GB) to mess around with (actually, to store the data we share regularly), and I thought of an interesting setups that I would want:
1) Firefox Windows version and Firefox Linux version with single bookmarks.html file...
I'd like very much to be able to run Firefox from my pen drive on both linux and windows, and would like to have the same bookmarks file shared by each version, so I can easily move between computers for browsing...
Now, I just formatted the drive 500MB - FAT32, 540 MB - reiserfs... And I could install a windows version on the FAT32 portion, a linux version on the other... But I don't think that's the way to go... If I were to just format the entire thing FAT32, would I be able to run both the linux and windows versions on that filesystem? What problems would I be getting myself into doing this? How well does linux support FAT32? I'd really like to run on reiser when I can, but I can't think of an easy way to share that bookmarks file.
In addition to that, am I going to have an issue with viruses with the pen drive? It's been over a year since I've seriously used a Windows PC...
And, once more, on top of that... Do I need additional firefox (win) and firefox (linux)'s for the 64 bit architecture, or will the 64 bit processors allow me to run the 32 bit versions?
Okay... and lastly for the firefox thing, have you ever heard of a way to do the shared bookmarks file that I can read, or am I going to have to start hacking code?
2) Apache web server (same thing)
Now... is it possible to put a server on there that acts the same way? What about sticking PHP and mySQL support in with it? Heh... If this one hasn't been done yet, I don't know if I want to start hacking away with it, I've got a job
Thanks for the input everybody,
