What I would like to do is move away from using VMs for running linux inside a Windows 7 host to a dual-boot setup. I know there are ways of mounting ext based partitions from windows and NTFS partitons in linux easily.
If I want to have a single "home" directory for my Windows 7 user and linux user, how would I go about this? Just create an NTFS partition and use is as a separate drive in Windows for storing files and mount it as my home dir in linux? Are there any permissions problems I might run into?
Any advice would be welcome, it's been a while since I've attempted a dual-boot setup!
