I've looked around and I've seen a lot of advice to put the /home folder on a diffrent partition. I want to do this, but I like to get 2 flies in 1 stroke.
Is it possible to put the /home folder on an NTFS partition? I know Ubuntu and Windows can both read and write to this type of partition. I prefer the NTFS over FAT32 that's been recommended all over the web because it's a bit friendlier with storing files.
The reason I ask is because I got quite the collection of films I want to share with the rest of my dorm. And I want to keep them all in my /home/movies/ folder. But seeing as the rest uses Windows (either XP or Vista), I want to make sure they can read my films. Don't want to format a big part of my drive as a partition they can't read (ext3).
