Hey,

I have two questions, but they're related so I'll ask them in the same thread.

First. I'm fairly new to Linux and am dual-booting OS X 10.5.6 and Intrepid (Kernel 2.6.27-11) I have 20 GB on my hard drive as "unallocated" I would like to create a shared HD fully readable and writable from both Ubuntu and Mac. I tried this on Disk Utility and it didn't work. So, I was wondering if I would be able to do this using GNOME Partition Editor.

Second, is it possible to to the same thing to a Time Machine drive. I think all I have to do is disable journaling on it.


Thanks for any help,

-Rob

use disk utility to make a "msdos" format partition in the free space. that should be usable by both operating systems.

Doesn't work. It says media kit can't find such a partition
