I currently have a custom PC with a 400GB NTFS HD with XP Pro, if you need all my hardware let me know. I want to buy a 2nd internal hard drive thats ~750GB+ and put Ubuntu on it. However, I also want to put lots of media on it, and treat it more/less as a storage drive. But heres the catch --- I want to be able to boot to Windows, and use the media(movies, music, pictures, documents, etc) thats on my hard drive with Ubuntu. (Basically I want both operating systems to be able to see and use all the media)
I am not sure if this is possible, or if it is how it's done. My only guess is somehow partitioning the slave drive. Any suggestions would be great.
