Question RHL 7.2 with XP question(from an AIX admin)

I want to install Redhat 7.2 as a dual-boot with XP. It will require me to format my D: disk for RHL(ext3?).

Q: Is it ok to format this disk for the install although a small portion of the Recycle bin resides on it?

Q: Does the formatted disk need to be(or should it be) ext3, unlike my XP's NTFS?

Any links to basic questions like these are greatly appreciated.

you can format it with ext3, but your recycle bin won't be able to use it anymore.
If it's necessary for recycle bin to use a partition other than c:, you could resize d: and create an ext3 partition with the empty space.
