    Default OSx & XP Dual Boot with shared HD storage

    I'm trying to pull a bit of a stunt here and am not sure if I'm in the right place to find out how to accomplish this.

    I recently purchased a HP DV6700t notebook which my friend stated would be hackintosh friendly.

    I upgraded the harddrive to a Seagate Momentus 7200rpm 200gb drive and decided to attempt the following...

    What I've done so far is install XP on a 25GB partition with the rest unpartitioned.
    What I'm trying to do is have...

    Partition 1: XP (i formatted this with NTFS)
    Partition 2: OSx (I have not done this step yet)
    Partition 3: File Storage

    The tricky part is that I want Partition 3 to be easily accessible from both an XP boot and the OSX boot. From my research I have found that XP can read/write to both NTFS & FAT32 while OSX has its own version and can only read NTFS but also read/write on FAT32.

    Would it be smart to make partition 3 a FAT32 format?


    Thanks to any help in advance.

    I'll assume this is impossible. So much for trying MacOS.
    I'll stick with windows.

    it is possible!!!
    i've done it yesterday! i have 3 partitions: 32gb (XP, fat32), 60gb(file storage, fat32) and 28gb(MacOS X leopard 10.5.2, hfs+ journaled).
    macos partition must be created in windows (i used diskpart) with id=AF. then install macos on this partition. after install, macos will mount all partitions and you can use them.
