Sharing Hard Drives between two OSs
I am currently running Vista and Sabayon with the Grub bootloader. I have two hard drives, one 200 gig, and one 500 gig. I partitioned the 200 gig into 2 15 gig partitions, one 8 gig partition, and one 160 gig partition. I have Vista installed on one 15, Sabayon on the other, and the 8 set as a swap. The 160 is going to be used for program files and such, and the 500 for media. I want to share the 160 and 500 between the 2 OSs, so I can access my documents and media from either one, but for some reason Vista shows a 15, 160, and 500, and Sabayon only shows access to a 15. How can I get Sabayon to show the 160 and 500 as well?

You have to mount other partitions in Sabayon. Open Terminal/Konsole and execute this
su - fdisk -l
* Its small L in fdisk -l.

Ya, we need to 'mount' that space if not already done so by the distro.
Typically, as root (administrator)
mkdir /mnt/share1 mount -t vfat /dev/sdax /mnt/share1
If you want to mount it permanently then we need to edit a file /etc/fstab.A candle looses nothing by lighting other candles. - Khalil Zibran.
