I really doubt that is possible. I pretty sure they handle RAM differently, so I guessing
the same could be said for the swap file.
Thanks everybody, for replying. I was considering danimalz's
suggestion but I was really hoping for a one filesystem solution. If I'm gonna have to use two filesystems then I might as well keep them in their OS' filesystem and access one from the other with the help of various tools. I'm really not even considering FAT32.
The ext2 driver for windows looks very interesting but it's for x86 processors only. I'm guessing that excludes by dual core Athlon.
If I were to create an extended partition with three logical drives, would that show up in linux as three partitions or one?
