Sharing Partitions? /root help too please.
I plan to dual boot Linux Mint and Windows XP with three different partitions; one for XP, one for Mint, and one for storage that will be shared between the two. My question is, if I install programs like Firefox(both Linux and Windows versions) will I be able to seamlessly share bookmarks, RSS, and history between both Linux and Windows? I also plan on keeping the shared partition NTFS as Linux Mint allows mounting of that partition and I can get NTFS-Fuse.
Since Linux Mint is a variation of Ubuntu I am assuming that the default user is not root. Is there any advantage to using /root user if I am the only one that is going to use this computer?
If this is not going to work can anyone suggest a good partition setup? I plan on having 40GB for Windows, 15GB for shared, 1GB for swap, and 14GB for Linux.
