    Hey everyone. I was just wondering how to go about making my windows vista drive read/write under macosx so that I can edit files in that partition while in macosx. I'm on a macbook pro. Thanks a lot!

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro 15, 1Gb RAM, 100GBHD, 2 Perfoma636CD, Apple, Apple IIe, + 2 PC, XP Pro 64bit, & ThinkPad
    You could use parallels and just run windows in osx and drag stuff between them.

    can you format the "c:" drive as fat32 under vista or will it only accept ntfs (or is it something new entirely?).

    I am sure your Vista drive is NTFS. At the present time NO OS can write to an NTFS Partition except NT, 2K, XP and now Vista. If it was FAT32 then you could do both read and write. I too am not sure if Vista will support FAT32, but I will check later as I have RC2 installed.
