I think I got what you are saying.  You can dual boot Linux and windoze and share files.  NTFS is a bit risky but it is getting much better.  Redhat does have the support so it will be available to the other distros soon.

You can access windoze from Linux but I don't think windoze will access Linux.

That answer your question?

u can use us windoze drives by mounting it. The easiiest way to mount is by using the command
Code: [Select]
mount <dev> <mount point>the <dev> will be /dev/hda1 if ur windoze is in first partition of ur hdd which is a primary master
<mount point> will be the directory where it will mount . i make it /mnt/c as my mount point u may also create one.
instead u may put all these commands in /etc/fstab.
if u have windoze 2000 of xp u may be having an ntfs partition for this u may have to recompile the kernel and select the ntfs partitions or instead make a module ntfs.o and put it in ur running kernel and follow the same steps as above
