Hey guys, I'm not a complete noob to Ubuntu but I do have a question regarding an installation I plan to do on a new computer I just bought. I would like to put 9.10 on a new dell studio. I have a 500GB hard drive on the box and I was wondering what the best way to share data (music, documents, ect) between windows and unbuntu would be. I want to have about a 150GB windows partition, a 100 GB Ubuntu partition and then use the remaining 250GB for storage. I'm not sure of the best way to do this. I just want to be able to access all of my files on both windows and ubuntu depending on what i'm logged into. Any help would be much appreciated.

I would make the shared parition NTFS. To get Ubuntu to read and write to it, from the repositories get NTFS Configuration Tool.
