Here's my scenario:
I'm going to partition my machine about 35GB for Vista and then the remainder (280GB or so) for linux. maybe 15GB for / and the rest for /home
I'm going to install VBox probably, but I'm not against VMWare server. This is in LInux, which I intend to use as much as possible (meaning never use vista if I don't have to)
On the virtual machine I'll be running XP and I plan on having itunes on it so I can do my ipod a good way (sorry linux peeps, I think the alternatives are poo). I plan on having the files sit in a linux folder under home and having the XP VM access/edit them.
Is this going to work? Will the XPVM treat the /home drive like a network shared drive and have no issues? Will it freak out since it's technically a partition in Linux? Will linux freak out because a different OS is accessing the file system?
Just things like that I don't know about.. I'd rather not copy all the files to the XP VM because if I wipe it out I don't want all my things stored inside a VM image, I'd rather they be in a regular filesystem.
Thanks in advance
