    Hi and Welcome !

    I am not getting your question. Do you want to share Linux data over network with Windows Machines or between Linux and Windows Partitions in single machine?
    Linux supports FAT32 read/write access out of box.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    If you are looking to share a hard drive with Windows and Linux using a dual boot then I was playing with this the other day:

    Sharing hard drives with XP - openSAUCE

    It's not a fantastic blog but will lead you in the right direction. You may want to look into editing your fstab file too.

    Okk ! Boot up RH9, open Terminal and execute this
    Code:
    su -
    fdisk -l
    Post output here.


    * Do you know that RH9 is obsolete and RedHat is not supporting anymore? You will face a lot of Hardware/Software problems in RH9.
