    Default Triple hard drive partition


    Hello,
    I like to make 3 partitions on the hard drive of my computer.
    - One dedicated to Mac OS Leopard
    - One for Windows XP
    - Another in FAT32 to store my documents and are accessible from both my other two partitions

    I wonder how in Leopard I can set the default storage location of my files. In fact, I just want all the profile folders (library, music, documents, etc..) Be on the FAT32 partition. Is this possible and if so, how?

    Create the partitions is not what poses the most problem with the disk utility and boot camp, I would get.

    By cons, it's for Mac OS that automatically stores my files on the FAT 32 partition that I wonder. I do not know how you can set the location of files related to user accounts.

    Because as with Mac, I access my NTFS partition, as far as PC, I not access my Mac partition (hence the need FAT32 recognized by both OS). And in case you reinstall the OS, it's better he seems to have the data on a partition "neutral".

    Hello all,

    to continue this topic, I wonder what is the easiest to clean install BootCamp with several HFS + Mac OS were leaving, knowing that the utility does not launch on a disk with a single partition? In the end I get 5 partitions of equal size as follows:

    - Score 1 - HFS + System
    - Partition 2 - HFS +
    - Score 3 - HFS +
    - Score 4 - HFS +
    - Score 5 - NTFS with Windows 7

    For now I made a complete re-install OS X with a single partition of 250 GB. what is the best method then? I understand that if we tried in 4 resplitter the HFS partition with the OS X GUI utility, it also BootCamp gun.

    Hello, I squatted on topic because I'm roughly in the subject.

    I'm not as advanced skills in Mac OS Windows. I wanted to use Boot Camp to install Windows XP.
    (I own a MacBook with Leopard).

    Everything started well, then partitioned it asked me to insert win before restarting. And I used my reflex PC user and I booted the CD, so I think he had to wait on reboot the mac and let it do.

    So I have installed Windows from the bios on the empty partition that was created to FAT32 but after not boot!

    I had to format the NTFS partition to boot on windows but can not recover from my Mac OS boot partition which is nevertheless still present and intact.

    It makes me really pissed off, I really go through virtualization instead of doing all that for nothing.

    Thank you for the tip for the dual boot, I always mac and windows, thank you!

    Boot camp by cons did not install on my windows, with all the problems that entails.

    So I do not right click on my trackpad, or scroll vertically with two fingers. The keyboard is also not suitable.
