Is it possible to mount Linux and Vista on a dual partition and if so what are the compatibility issues?

Thanks! :huh:

Yes it's possible - but I don't know of any compatibility issues. The only one that I can imagine is if you're trying to access Windows partitions from Linux. There appear to be slight differences in the way that Vista and XP treat file systems - but it's not documented anywhere that I've seen.

If this is true, then the Linux would have to be updated to reflect this when addressing the Windows file system. But, as a practical matter I don't expect that it would cause any serious issues.
