Dual boot/Partition file system
 
Hi I have a computer and I want to dual boot Windows XP and RH9. What file system should i use for the windows partition? Is FAT32 fine our should I switch it to NFTS?

FAT32 is ok, as you can read/write on it from linux systems. NTFS write support is still in development so is kinda risky trying to handle that filesystem from linux.

Cheers!!

One option would be to use a NTFS partition for your main XP install and use a separate FAT32 partition to share data.
