Triple boot with MS XP
If this isn't on topic, sorry ahead of time & perhaps you can point me in the right place?
I've been reading up on having a separate partition for your /home files. For quite some time, I've been using a ntfs partition named "storage" as it makes re-install or fresh install of OS much easier. While it's WAAAAAY neat that two different distros of Linux can share the /home partition, I still need MS at times. I figure I can't be the only one, but after looking on the net, I couldn't decide the best way. I could use Linux to pull files off of the MS XP ntfs partition easy enough, but it seems cheesy. All the options to allow XP to see the Linux partition have permission issues as well as hidden extensions that can't be hidden. Dangerous trumps cheesy. It would seem grabbing what I need in XP partition from within Linux is the answer... is there something I've overlooked? I'm gunna get into virtualization at some point, but I'm just not ready to nuke XP, there are times it's the only thing I can get to work (like my Netbook internal 3G)
