    Question Partition questions

    Ok, I'm still pretty new to Linux, and this is probably a really dumb and eat question, but I have to ask it to make sure. So I'm going to get the new MacBook pro when it comes out, and will triple boot Osx, elementary os, and lubuntu or lxde Debian. I have to know, if I give the systems each their own 20 gig or so partition, can I make a fat32 partition that's humongous and can be shared as like a communal partripn across all systems? I read up and think Osx can do it, but in not completely sure about Linux. Thanks.

    I have never had a problem sharing a fat (or ntfs) partition with Ubuntu and other linux/windows operating systems on the same hard drive.
