    Hard Drive/Boot Camp Questions
    Hi,
    Need a new laptop. Unsure whether to go for a Dell PC or a Mac. If I got a mac, i would use boot camp to put XP on it (for games, and a couple windows only programs).
    I presume boot camp lets you choose your partitions for the hard drive, however a couple questions about this:
    1) Can the windows partition access the mac partition?
    2) Can the mac partition access the windows partition?
    3) Could I have a 3rd partition with just music, videos etc. on that both OS's could access?

    The reason I want to know, is that I use my computer to listen to music etc. and don't want to have to save the mass of songs on both parts.

    Thanks...
