Thank you all so much for your assistance with the newbies (me included).
I am looking to dual-boot Ubuntu and Windows XP. I would like both OSs to be able to read and write from a data partition that will need to be able to store files larger than 4GB (i.e. Fat32 won't work). I know there is an NT reader for Linux and I know there is an ext2 reader for Windows. What would you recommend I do, any why?
250GB total disk space. Would prefer 50G for both OSs, plus 150G for data.
