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.

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