I tried dual booting with the EXT2 File system that partition magic recommended for me to us PC Linux OS, but it didnt work very well and screwed up my MBR. It messed up both partitions pretty bad so I had to start from scratch.
Now, reason Im asking about FAT32, is because Partition magic has a bootloader that only loads if there is atleast 1 FAT32 present. I know that linux can be read from NTFS, but cant be written on. So thats out of the question.. anyway, Im downloading the puppy linux live cd and am going to mess around with that.. Can anyone help me out here? Also, if none of them read a FAT32, which BL can I use to dual boot between windows xp and a linux distro *Really looking to use Redhat, SuSE, or gentoo*
I realize what I wrote in the second paragraph, and I must say that I used NTFS for windows xp, and EXT2 for linux.. Didnt work, they didnt like each other. Even with the linux swap space.. My MBR got all screwy, and I couldnt boot windows.
