Media Only On Partition 1, Accessible to Linux and Windows on Partions 2 and 3?

I'm running Ubuntu 7.10 and XP MCE. XP is on a NTFS formatted drive. I have media though that I'd like to be able to access and edit from each OS.

Is it possible to create another partition and use it to store media? Would it then be accessible from both XP and Ubuntu?

If you format the partition as fat32, then both OSs can use it.

If you are running one of the newer Linux kenels, and feel like taking a chance with NTFS write from Linux, you can try formatting it as NTFS.
