Windows/Linux Fat32 Share partition problem

Okay I created a partition when installing Unbuntu for use as a share partition between Linux and Windows.

I am only able to boot into the kernel and chroot into the root. From there "df" shows a layout of the partitions... None are accurate infact only the names are correct, all other data is indentical amongst the partition info...

Anyway, I copied a file to the sda8 partition which is what WinXp is currently recognizing as a Fat32 G: drive. Linux showed the file was there in the drive mounted as /share, I ctrl+alt+del shutdown to reboot to WinXp, check the G: drive and there is nothing. Reboot back to Linux and the file "linux.bin" still exists.

Any help on this one???

Okay I fixed it all up good.
Simply because I got the OS installed and booted properly via the WinXp NT Loader.
