partition question

acidentially posted this in the wrong spot earlier so reposting

My questions are simple at first I am oh so new to linux currently a student at bridgerland applied tech learning information technology they have not covered linux as of yet just starting with windows lol
is there any common ground partition style that windows can see and use as well as linux? because I want to create a duel boot enviroment but I have only a single hdd so basicly I will partition the windows to a 5 gb space for the os and the same for the linux version then use a middle ground to store files games and apps ect

just make sure you use fat32 and not ntfs. write to ntfs partitions is not supported yet in linux and windows cannot read linux partitions at all.

good luck,
