I have researched this as best I can but do not know much about drive partitioning so I can't find answers to my questions.
I want to multi-boot Ubuntu, Fedora, and Windows 7. Also, I want to store ALL my non-program data (documents, media, etc.) for Ubuntu AND Fedora on a fourth [data] partition that both Ubuntu and Fedora automatically mount on startup.
Is this possible?
Is there anything strange I need to know about this? (I.e. I'll have problems later, I should have Ubuntu and Fedora share a swap partition, etc.).
How much space should I allow for a Ubuntu or Fedora partition that only has the system and program files?
I read somewhere about a driver for Windows that will allow you to use an ext* filesystem. Could my Windows partition access the data partition as well?
