persistent fs mounts between linux usb-boot and qemu guest on windows?


i have played with linux on a usb stick before, but at least half the time i use it on windows (my box runs linux). i was thinking whats the best way to get persistent apps/data between 2 modes of use, qemu.exe and usb-hdd boot.

perhaps 2 boot partitions, with 2 separate kernels? can i do that and mount the rest of the filesystem from a common partition?

has anyone done this an easier way? i don't really know what i'm looking for, only that supposedly you can't use a partition like /dev/sda1 except in a way that prevents hardware booting /dev/sda.

thanks in advance
