mounting filesystem to home?

I want to mount my fat drive to home at boot so I can have one "home" in windows and linux...

I edited fstab but everytime I log in, I automatically get logged out.. it says, my session did not last 10 secs... blablabla..

I was wondering if it's possible for my home directory to be a mount point... well I tried mounting it at the terminal and it works but when I mount it at boot... I can't log in

It is possible, but you shouldn't do it. There was a similar thread recently. The problem is the inability of FAT to deal with unix permissions.
