    Multiple Win OS's in bootcamp
    I asked this in my other thread, but it sort of got lost in the shuffle.

    If I use bootcamp to install both XP and Vista partitions, will they be able to access each other's files? If it matters, XP will be on fat32 and Vista will be on NTFS.

    if you could install xp and vista they shud be able to acsess the other files.

    mac osx can read and write to fat but only read from ntfs
    neither of the windows partitions can read or write to the hfs+(mac osx) partition unless you get macdrive
