Can you clarify something ... you mention "want to share
some windows partitions (FAT) mounted on an Ubuntu server" ...
and then mention the machines are duel-boot ...
a) For the Ubuntu server - is a FAT partition mounted
from a local partition(s) while the server is running?
And the FAT partition(s) that is mounted is what you
want to share?
IOW, on the hard drive (the Ubuntu server is running),
the partition /dev/hda1 is the FAT partition and the
/dev/hda2 partition is for Ubuntu and /dev/hda1 is
mounted at "/windows/c" and you want to share that
mount point (/windows/c)
b) You have a machine that is booted into XP on the
network and you want to share FAT partition(s)
while that XP box is running
... or ...
Both (a) and (b)
