    BeOS apps w/ linux


    I have beOS 5 PE and it is installed over windows XP (sucks). I also have 2 linux workstations running redhat 7.0. I cannot get BeOS to recognize a windows formatted disc because it is unix based, however, is it possible to format a disk on redhat, save the .tar or .gz zip file and transfer the file that way? Or do i have to sac the rest ofmy life to figure out how to put Be on the internet?

    Well, it's possible to read a fat disk in linux, to tar and gzip its contents and to format disks. So the question is: What fs does beos want to use? I find it pretty strange that it doesn't support fat. Are you sure of that?
