I need a working partition configuration for use and accessibility on both Ubuntu and Windows. I have an 8GB USB flash drive onto which I am installing Ubuntu 11.10 so that I can have a personal bootable OS wherever I go. I've installed Ubuntu several times, but I just can't seem to get this one partition right. This is my own configuration:
- Partition 1: Primary - 200MB - Beginning - Ext4 - /boot
- Partition 2: Primary - 1300MB - End - swap area
- Partition 3: Logical - 5200MB - Beginning - Ext4 - /
- Partition 4: Logical - 1258MB - Beginning - Ext4 - /home
- Partition 5: Logical - 42MB - End - FAT32? - /windows?
What I want to do is to get partition 5 configured so I can access it on both the installed Ubuntu system and a Windows system (when the USB drive is connected while Windows is booted).
Basically, what I want is Ubuntu installed on the USB drive along with a partition that I can access with other operating systems.
I'm thinking I just need the technical configuration of "Use as:" and "Mount point:" for my final partition. But I don't know. Any help with this is appreciated. And any other tips are appreciated as well.
