I have 3 gigs of freespace on my 12 gig HD. I would like to
partition this space and make it available to both my Red Hat 6.1 OS and
my Win98 OS. Therefore, it has to be a FAT32 filesystem. I can't use
fdisk in windows to do this because it doesn't recognize linux. In
other words, windoze fdisk shows 5 gigs of free space when this is
definately not true, linux is taking up 2 gigs. I don't want to use the
win fdisk in fear of it screwing up my linux system. Cfdisk in linux
shows the proper HD setup with the correct amount of freespace, so I
would like to use this program. My question, however, is which type of
filesystem should I format the drive in?..it doesn't seem to write
FAT32 filesystems, only FAT16 versions. Can I choose any FAT16 version
and write that filesystem so that windoze recongnizes it, and then
reformat the partition (new win drive) into a FAT32 from inside windoze?
How should I go about accomplishing this task without screwing anything
up? Any help is greatly appreciated.
I thank everyone who helps in advance = )
