If you want to have XP installed on one HD, and Linux on another, can the XP drive be partitioned NTFS and Linux be able to read/write to it?...

    Linux can see Windows partitions using Samba, if and only if they are FAT (NTFS won't work).

    My two cents is unless you know for a fact, that you will never need to share resources with any other file systems, never use NTFS. So unless your physic don't waste your time on NTFS and use fat32 only with NT/2000/XP.

    NTFS is only really usefull/manditory on Windoze servers, not workstations.
