http://ubuntuforums.org – I am trying to set up a system with Win 7 and a Ubuntu 12.04 based distro. As regards using a storage/documents partition for both systems: ext3 not an option - drivers for reading that system in Windows do not work in Windows 7. Tried several combinations for hours. decided to use fat32: 1) only possible mount point of fat32 in ubuntu is: /windows 2) changing permissions for /windows - not possible. (gksu nautilus, sudo chown, etc give the same result - cannot change permissions for this folder). I am not able to build the system at all this way. (Hardware)
